Mark Cavendish finally had his day at stage ten in Teramo, and he seemed to enjoy every minute of it.
My view of the finish line:
Contador and Garzelli had a chat as they came in.
La gioia di Cavendish:
La delusione di Petacchi:
With all the attention on the sprinters, Scarponi had a smaller than usual audience for his man-of-a-thousand-faces routine (but I still enjoyed it).
Contador kept the maglia rosa, but didn't keep his appointment at the press conference.
Cavendish was in good spirits at the press conference, where he gave an entertaining answer to a question about an accusation from Ventoso that he had been helped by the team car on the Etna climb.
