Thoughts on Stage 4

Mark Cavendish is a great rider, but should probably shut his mouth and ride his bike. Today's stage was perfectly suited for him; he just didn't have anything when the time came for the bunch sprint. 

By contrast, we learned that Ale Jet's win in Stage 1 was no fluke; he's come to the Tour in excellent form. It's great to see him back sprinting at the highest level. 

I was also impressed to see Tyler Farrar contesting the final sprint. With his fractured wrist and sprained elbow, it's amazing that he's still in the Tour at all.
