Yeah, Kittel was told to never do it again and apologize on Twitter or his a$$ was fired.

Fortunately for him, unlike his apology, his sprint is real.

According to CN - Kittels handlebars apparently broke after hitting a hole in the road: "I broke the right side of my handlebar and I crashed. That's the story, there's no more to say,".

I thought Cav's "chain came off" complaints was from stage 2, hence his inability to even feature...
(where exactly are that SRAM flame comments of his - can't find them on cyclingnews)
But at least he can still win a sprint from a small group, I mean team. :)

Regarding stage2, cyclingnews wrote:
>weave through the peloton in the final kilometre but eased up when he realised there was no way through to contest the sprint.

But I saw something else on TV. At 300m he was on Greipel's wheel.
At 150m he was right behind Pelucci, the eventual winner, with space on the right to overtake him.
So there was a way for him to contest the sprint.

i don't disagree with you. Unless the push happened more than once, that's the only instance i found. So I'm not quite sure what cav was on about (not that it reallllly matters). Gif is small but race numbers on video match martin and cav

@ave, it was about the stage 1:

Maybe it is not that clear from the gif, but I see how Martin waved to the left, maybe to really not kiss Cav's wheel. Anyway, if that push wasn't because of the dropped chain, how much do you think it could have helped Cav? I think that literally nothing. If he wasn't able to keep up with the pace, he would have been dropping more than just at that moment. :-)

Those are really sharp. I'd buy a pair if I didn't already have three pairs of perfectly good road shoes.
