So the first proper stage of the Tour today with the usual number of nervous crashes. An intelligently timed win by Peter Sagan, the new Slovakian whizz kid, taking his first stage in his first Tour today.
Time also for us to take our first look at this year's podium girls. Today we look at those handling stage winner duties. They look very elegant in their little black dresses and the one on the right looks like a cross between Wonderwoman's Lynda Carter and Katie Holmes; neither of which is a bad thing, we should add!
