Yeah, just cruised home in the end. The crash obviously took out pretty much all the sprinters bar Ciolek though. Apparently there was a bit of a scuffle towards the end as well - some Dutch domestique barged inot Cavendish, who made it clear he didn't like it.
I reckon Cancellara has an outside shot this year, with the lack of real height in the Pyranees and then a huge effort up the Ventoux.
