The Tour de France prologue is over. Thor Hushovd won with George Hincapie right behind (< 1 sec). I didn't get to watch all of it, but it was a fairly straightforward way. Something < 6 miles (probably 6km). Everyone did it in about 8 min or so. The only surprise was someone (I forget his name and don't want to look for it) showing up late at the starting gate. That rider would have probably won (or been close) had he been there on time. From what it looks like, the clock starts at your assigned time regardless of whether you are there or not.
