It arrives at Sarran today. They have gone all out to promote the ‘Corrèze ‘ image. There is loads of stuff to do, and buy! Before it arrives... have fun y’all!

Do you mean Sagan? I thought that it was a pretty clear penalty...he headbutted Wout van Art, who was holding a straight line, out of the way in order to force his way through. Heat of the moment or not, it's a dangerous move...and in the past a similar move pushed Cavendish into the railings.

No, Sarran, in Correze, where le Tour de France arrives today.

They went through here just after 2pm... whoosh! ... and it was quickly over.
We hung around to have a drink and a chat on the village square. Very festive - the primary school kids lined the route with their handmade flags (all nationalities).

I was just disappointed that my husband hadn't saved me any of the "goodies" he got from the caravane publicitaire - he gave them all to the kids :(
I'm sure I would have looked good in a Leclerc cap waving a Senseo wooden spoon munching on a saucisson Cochonou... ;)

I disagree, it was in the heat of the moment.
Sagan is undoubtedly one of the best riders of his type and has been for many years. Unfortunately he has little regard for other competitors, particularly if he thinks he is about to be beaten. Mark Cvendish's career was finished by Sagan's blatant foul play because he could not bear to see a faster sprinter pass him with ease.
Yesterday was certainly "in the heat of the moment" just like they always are. He was very lucky that The Belgian stayed upright. It was not accidental and definitely dangerous. Sagan deserved his punishment. Now I need Sam Bennett to take full advantage and win the Green Jersey.

Wow it must have found it so humiliating. The team were a bit more active yesterday after giving up on supporting Bernal. It’s quite a different Team from the last 10 years

True, I think Brailsford over estimated Bernal. Ok, so he won last year, but last year was cut short by the weather and I am sure he wouldn't have won had the stages run full distance.
If you are going to win the GC you need a team leader to control the peloton, not just a bunch of world class cyclists who are happy to sit in the wheels and snatch a few minutes in the Alps.
