I read a blog that tried to explain Sagan's frustration a little:

I totally agree that Nibali won his first stage because the other guys no matter what weren't going to get beat by Sagan.

Yea, as a fan of cycling and competition his statement pissed me off but I think it reflects more on the state of the Tour nowadays than it does on him. It makes me even more bummed that Talansky is out. His victory in the Dauphine was probably my favorite of the year.

He made some kind of effort today to move up the standings (while losing time anyway). That was an honest effort, and he was also hampered by other guys who maybe didn't want Nibali to win but whatever else happened they weren't going to help that Van Garderen guy.
