It's been an entertaining start to the 2016 Tour de France, with crashes galore. Team leader Alberto Contador was taken out by domestiques, twice, and Michael Matthews crashed at over 70km'h and had barely a scratch to show for it after surfing a bike for 100 meters. Not to mention Mark Cavendish, it seems, is back to his preeminent days of old and Peter Sagan is continuing to prove his incredible star quality.
