Default Anyone else watching "Tour de France" 2014

Who was that Yorkshireman running alongside the bikers in his undies?

I missed that. No big deal, we'll see lots of that in France. Shame to see Mark Cavendish crash and break his collarbone. He's admitted it was his fault. Hope Simon Garrans is ok.

It looked like the classic biking injury- resulting in a shattered clavicle (collage bone). When I saw the fall in slo-mo, I knew he would be lucky to come out with a bad AC joint sprain (shoulder separation).

Sad to see, he is one of the exciting racers to watch.

Current reports say dislocated shoulder, no broken bones. Out of the Tour either way.

Cavendish crashed himself pushing his way ahead, I've seen him do this many times but this is the first time he's paid a price to my knowledge. I hope he learns a lesson from this painful injury.

So Cavendish is back to his old tricks.
He has had points deducted, fines imposed on him and even fellow riders protesting against his dangerous riding.
This time he broke his own bones rather than those of others, hopefully that will teach him the error of his ways.

watched the final 65km
shame about the loss of Cavendish from Le Tour.
will hope that Britain and Sky and Froome can do well.

Would be nice to have three British wins in a row.
