I am not one to watch this, but the few times I have over the past decade my only take-away was that a fan was going to cause a fucking pile-up.

The first Day 1 crash is getting all the attention, but the second was even more spectacular. One of the UAE guys was very lucky to not have his head smash fully into a telephone pole, which probably would have killed him.

Will Cavendish tie, or beat, Merckx's record?  Great storyline for the Tour's PR dept.  It has been nice to see a less cocky than his hey-day Cavendish truly appreciating his wins, and the team supporting him.
