Bump and Grind

Was a normal stage, until the finish. Kittel took the sprint like a pro and is having a dam good tour right about now. Cavendish is having a slightly harder time though, and my lip reading skills are not that good but, I’m pretty sure he said the F word crossing the the line in third place. It wasn’t getting third place that caused it either. I instantly saw his situation. F indeed. Because he knew he would be damned no matter what, that most objectivity would be out the window somewhere and waving smugly at him as the journalists got dug in. Watching the replay, it’s obvious [to me] that he wasn’t reckless, and that Veelers was a bit absent minded, both riders were pissed with the outcome. BUT… Only a rider like Cavendish gets the many inane questions from 100’s of journalists daily, that is hard to deal with when you know things didn’t go well – That little bump and grind meant a pile of media bullshit for someone who is just trying to race.
