Tour de France Twitter wrap: stage four
I’m back with Twitter coverage of stage four of the Tour de France. Apologies for missing a stage but was anyone really surprised that Sagan won stage three? The finish suited him really well and he was always going to be in the mix.
Greipel’s win in stage four was much more interesting, particularly with all the subplots with the Green Jersey beginning to emerge. Mark Cavendish is now 61 points behind Peter Sagan (a good two stage wins assuming Sagan doesn’t place), with Goss and Greipel also in the mix.
I think Cav will still win it but it’s a lot closer than many expected. Let’s see what else Twitter had to say about stage four:
Jonathan Vaughters continues to believe that Ryder Hesjedal is stressing over the race so far – #someonegetthatmanastraightjacket.
Cadel commenting on teammate Philippe Gilbert’s crash.
Aah, Mike, nobody cares about Origin except New South Welshmen and Queenslanders #whogivesatoss #govictoria #cyclingisbetterthanrugby.
Didn’t know either of the Schlecks had a sense of humour. I may have been wrong about that.
Mick Rogers lost more than a teammate from the Tour after stage three.
Bernie Eisel is not pleased with Mark Cavendish’s photography. I’m not pleased with Bernie Eisel’s heart-rate-monitor-tan #areyouforreal.
Cyclists are often called upon for their linguistic skill, as Mark Renshaw demonstrates then corrects himself.
Clearly looking after your stomach is more important than looking after your nutrition during the Tour, Richie.
