We learned that the stage winner, Peter Sagan, is a “quacker”, a cycling term for those that weave through the peloton cutting off people. It was worth it because he dominated the sprint and won the stage and is well on his way to win the green jersey for the points competition. The race got exciting in the last 1 mile while all the teams got in position to launch their sprinters. In a colorful turn of events, a large golf umbrella was blown onto the route, but luckily no one got hurt.
