    The top sprinters in national colors for the Tour

    Looks like Cavendish, Sagan, and Greipel all won there national road race chanpenships. Nothing like watching a bunch of national champs duke it out for sprint wins.

    Hoogerland also won the Dutch national road race championship. He may not win allot but I love seeing him do well. He deserves serious hard man status after his Tour crash in to the barbed wire.

    Cav actually won from the break, never seen that before.

    Griepel managed to win by getting his one teammate out front to force other's to chase so he won with no dedicated lead out. That's not his usual style either.

    Sagan doesn't really have one way of winning so it was his ordinary-race-day-coming-in-first thing, what should I do for a victory salute today?

    I'm picking Cav for stage 1 and stage 21 plus.
