Finally, in a Tour de France that has seen doping and odd results and crashes, I’ve been proven correct.

OK, once out of about 35 predictions isn’t that good, but I’ll take it.

Team Columbia rider Mark Canvendish has abandoned the Tour before the start of Stage 15.

That means the mantle of leader falls to George Hincapie and this is the stage that could see a total turnaround in standings.

Stay tuned.
