I'm in heaven.
And a tip of the hat to Jens Voight, king of the mountains (at least for a day) at age 42 and his last Tour. He rides with such joy.
Great but chaotic sprint at the end. Not hating on Marc Cavendish who took a nasty spill in front of the home crowd but great moves by Marcel Kittel to avoid the crash and don the first yellow jersey of the tour. Second stage will be a killer ride from York to Sheffield with 9 separate climbs. This tour starts with a bang, not a whimper and hasn't even gotten to France yet. Estimates of 800,000 fans on day one's route. Wonder how many a stage in the US would get?
