For the first time this year there's a victory by a team other than Sky Procycling: Liquigas-Cannondale has topped off the triumph of individual places by Peter Sagan of its two leaders for the general classification, Vincenzo Nibali who was 10th in stage three and Ivan Basso who was 31st. These two remained at the front for as long as possible to avoid losing any time and they earned a prize for their vigilance. Still, it is the second time that Sagan has imposed himself and finished ahead of Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen and, with this, the Italian outfit earned the victory of the team classification for the stage... even if Sky continues to lead the general classification after this tricky day of racing that ended on the Boulonnais hills.
