Anybody notice the difference between the Sprinters leadout in the TDF stage one vs The GRIO. Stage 1 looked hopelessly disorganized compared to the Telecom and Saaco efforts in the Grio.

What happened (besides no Saaco)?

some big teams like mapei and domo lost their sprinters at the back of the pack and to crosswinds. Freddie Rodriguez, Tom Steels, and Jan Svorada were not there to for their teammates to lead out... so it sort became a free-for-all.
