Sometimes crashes happen. Today's stage 10 finish was one of those times. Does Cav move left? Sure, but Veelers pops to the right with his head down as well. My thought is that Cav was following the leaders to the left and probably thought Veelers would go that way as well, not drift right. Either way the end result is Veelers in pain and Cavendish in third behind Greipel and the impressive Marcel Kittel of Argos Shimano who took his second stage victory - and his first against the other top sprinters in the peloton.
Sagan rolled over the line in fourth and maintained a slightly smaller, but still hefty lead in the points race as we head in to the all important ITT tomorrow.
