Stage 1 wrapup

BBC SPORT | Kirsipuu wins opening stage

The BBC wrapup on the stage notes that Bradley McGee suffered from "back problems" and lost more than 6 minutes (!!) on the stage. Keep an eye on McGee; he might not make it through the team time trial.

As for Kirsipuu:

"The sprint was incredible for me ... I am really, really happy."

BBC also has some early pictures from Stage 1, including a shot of Lance Armstrong taking the start in the green jersey.

Riding in pain! This is just soooo reminiscent of Tyler H's broken collar bone last year. Let's hope there is a skill chiropractor available ...
