It seems Roelandts is just hitting his peak. He took a break after the spring classics and came back very week. Bad results at Dauphiné. He didn't really do anything in the first week. Then on stage 11 and 13 he was getting better and on stage 18 he had his best sprint finishing 7th. He was going all the way to the finish, looked very strong. And yesterday he finished 18th in the ITT so he should feel strong. It looks like he is fresher than a lot of guys. On the other hand Turgot to me looked like a guy who wants this shit to end. He is up there in the sprints because Bbox don't have a true sprinter but he isn't really going for it, finishing 10-15th place all the time.

Robbie McEwen over Thor Hushovd (1.63)
Mark Cavendish over Alessandro Petacchi (1.25)

Jose Joaquin Rojas Gil over Thor Hushovd (1.50)
Robbie McEwen over Oscar Freire (1.55)

Oscar Freire over Matti Breschel (1.60)
Alessandro Ballan over Anthony Roux (1.62)


McEwen screwed it up, he should have beat Hushovd... Still small plus, Roelandts delivered easily.
