    Looked like the Trek rider caused the first crash where the Katusha guy fell - effectively shoulder charged him off the bike!

    A sprint stage with no sprinters. It's like watching basketball for short people.

    This.
    What a mess after nothing at all for 3 hours.
    Love Galicia though.

    To be fair I watched the last 3km after they stopped showing the MTB on the BBC and well it was an interesting distraction on my way down through the channels to NOS who were showing the MTB. I'm not sure which was/is more interesting.

    Amazed neither of the late crashes caused a pile up.

    I watched an hour and was bored stiff, the peloton were out for a club ride.
