TDF stage 4 / sprint / Petacchi wins another, reclaims green

Wednesday,  07/07/10  09:27 PM

Alessandro Petacchi out-sprints the field to claim another TDF stageA quiet day in the Tour de France; 200km of parade followed by 200m of sprinting!  To the surprise of many Mark Cavendish did not win, in fact he didn't even place in the top ten, instead Alessandro Petacchi won another sprint, this time without the benefit of any crashes eliminating his competition.  The usual suspects fought it out, including Thor Hushovd who seems to be Petacchi's main competitor for the green jersey.  Meanwhile it was all quiet on the GC front as the peloton took the opportunity to relax and heal.

Tomorrow is another field sprint - it will be interesting to see if Cavendish becomes a factor.
