Tour to date: Wild Ride

Two Yellow Jerseys have crashed out after donning the jersey for a day, but the favorite GC riders are still plugging away and most are in contention. It has been an exciting first week of racing. I feel much better about life at the tour after the sprint win of my man Mark Cavendish yesterday. I'm a big fan of Cav and really not a fan of Greipel, so I was glad to see that Mark finally got one right!

Today's stage is a bit lumpy, which will likely limit the opportunities for true sprinters, while not hard enough to really favor the climbers. A breakaway could makeit!
The winner of today's stage scores you choice of T-shirt styles from Arkansas Cycling and Fitness. I favor the "still plays with bikes" message on the back, with the AC&F logo tastefully placed on the front, but you can also pick the "Bike Arkansas" style. To win, you will have the winning rider and the top point total on the day among those teams with the winner.

We'll close out the first week with the Team Time Trial tomorrow. It is time to reward our GC leader, so the overall points leader going into the rest day gets a $20.00 gift card from Angry Dave's in Park Hill

Thanks again to our prize sponsors!
