Another day at Le Tour for the fat sprinters on what was this year's longest stage. The break never really looked like staying the distance and was easily reeled-in by the sprinter's teams.
Following some ongoing commentary in the media some of the GC contender's teams appeared to be less evident at the pointy end of the race inside the final 10KM. Intriguingly Team Sky especially were conspicuous by their bony-elbowed absence, preferring instead today to occupy "crash alley" one-third of the way back in the peloton.
But what another amazing finish from our man McLay - who judged his run to the line exceptionally well. Not only did he pick-up 7th place - his third top ten finish in four Tour de France stage starts, he managed to beat none other than Mark Cavendish!
Dan's putting it all down to his smart new aero lid and roadsuit. But we suspect last night's haribo probably had more to do with it.
