Sky vidogame in Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

TTT, team pursuit, team work. 
Mark Cavendish: "1st win in Europe this year. Absolutely buzzing. @TeamSky controlled it like a video game. Looks like the train is on track. So proud. #KBK"
Renaat Schotte: "I just asked Greipel: looking forward to #gw ? He said: now I fly home.. #kbk"
What happened today looks incredible: a team took the lead with MANY kms to go and kept it till the finish. At "New break. Sky TTT to catch it #KBK"  At
Van Avermaet, Baugnies, Barbé, Devillers, Eeckhout Van Hoecke and Fouchard. Lotto Belisol and OPQS worked a lot in the first part of the race but when the break was caught, around 60 km to go, a new one came out from the mess: Kuchynski, Chavanel, Eeckhout, Engoulvent, Mol and Delfosse. Sky moved to the front, Cavendish on the wheels...and remained there. 
"Honestly Cav doesnt look well... " I tweeted "Just an impression... Maybe I make him lucky with that ;) " His face emerging behinde his mates strong bodies looked green. I got the impression he couldn't breath.. As a matter of fact he survived the hills, his shape is great and we know from Quatar, he probably suffered but had the way to recover siting at the end of a luxury train. When his moment came... he did his job. Pure sprinters are like that. BDW like Guardini in Malaysia: second victory today. 
Hutarovich FOLLOWED Cavendish, you can't say he SPRINTED. But he was the only one following because the 3th on the line, Van Humme, was droped, behind, even cut in the photofinish shot.  Reno @renovandael reports "Greipel: ready to sprint to win until 300m, but got boxed in by Hummel and Sutton. Disappointed, waited one sec to long."
On his way to the podium Cavendish stoped signing papers for fans at the barriers. He changed. He's going to become a dad and is living an important relationship. Settled, serene, strong.
