Looks like Cavendish is back with the man who's not afraid to pull my favorite move in a fight.

Will this upset the raw power of Sagan and Kittel in July?

might not even be a concern for sagan. he's stated a focus on monuments this year, so he and cav might have a few head to heads, at best. additionally, sagan has two green jerseys so far and one was secured through a team effort on a single stage. but, should the three come together at a race, i think sagan and kittle have the skills to latch on to cav's train.

On a flat, fast finish, Sagan doesn't have the sprint to deal with Kittel or Cav. Make the road go up a little bit and then it's a different story...

Yeah, but Sagan is actually competitive in more than one type of race.

Sagan's rounded talent is impressive. Reminds me of Sean Kelly a bit.

It doesn't hurt that he's fun as hell to watch race.

He's a pretty special rider for sure. Talent to burnt and he makes it look easy.
The TDF Green jersey competition was a foregone result very early in the 2013 TDF.
