He’s got a body type I can identify with instead of them skinny climbers. Marcel drags himself over the hills to get to the valleys, flats, and sprints. And his hair is always perfect.

2 months ago, Kristof Ramon got this shot of a selfie at the Giro. The taker of it later apologized and that was it. At the Tour, along roads with larger crowds than the historic race has ever seen, selfies are back in the news with Zoe finding herself and her tweet in a Twitter Storm.
Frustrated, and for good reason, Ramunas Navardauskas was seen smacking phones out of fan’s hands (video since removed). As I wrote about the selfies at the Giro, let’s hope the norms of the crowd end this trend and quick. Here’s what Tejay van Garderen had to say…
Maybe it is a new day at the Tour. It’s another stage, of course, and Cavs didn’t start after owning the crash yesterday
“I’m gutted about the crash today. It was my fault. I’ll personally apologize to Simon Gerrans as soon as I get the chance. In reality, I tried to find a gap that wasn’t really there. I wanted to win today, I felt really strong and was in a great position to contest the sprint thanks to the unbelievable efforts of my team. Sorry to all the fans that came out to support – it was truly incredible.”
In the past, a defiant Cavs would’ve said something inflammatory AND gotten taped up, then started.
Stage 2 of the Tour de France saw record crowds for the second day and
Froome looked up to see Nibali win Stage Two.

Froome probably thought he saw Wiggins in the crowd and got spooked into 6th.— nyvelocity (@nyvelocity) July 5, 2014
And so begins three weeks of high speed drama. Hope Cav's shoulder is ok. He wanted this one bad. Chapeau, Kittel. pic.twitter.com/pZboy1aBJO— Louie Traub (@louietraub) July 5, 2014
Replay made that look stupid on Cav's part. Might have gotten cut off a bit, but forcing the issue guaranteed a crash. #tdf— Cyclocosm.com (@Cyclocosm) July 5, 2014
