That's all for today folks. Thank you to all who sent photos. Check the site tomorrow for coverage of stage two.
Scott Wilson in Harrogate: "Cavendish walks through post-race area, doesn't speak to the press, and goes straight on to the team bus. Expectation is that je'll be assessed as soon as possible to see if he is fit enough to race tomorrow."
Scott Wilson in Harrogate: "Shouldn't be forgotten that it's another win for Kittel, who has been Cavendish's biggest rival for a while now. Cancellara's break briefly looked like upsetting everyone, but Kittel was always perfectly positioned to pounce."
Can understand why Cavendish was so desperate to win that stage but not very smart in context of whole event.— @dbainestoronto 05 July 2014
Scott Wilson in Harrogate: "Replays suggest that Cavendish was going for a gap that wasn't there. Looks like a damaged collarbone."
Scott Wilson in Harrogate: "20,000 in the fan park had a massive intake of breath when Cavendish went down. Wasn't obvious for a second it was him, but when announced there was a huge scream.
"Big round of applause now though as an injured Cavendish goes across the line."
Pain on the face of Mark Cavendish but unsure whether it's the pain of losing sprint finish or injury picked up in the crash - possibly both.
Marcel Kittel wins Tour de France Stage One.
Disaster for Cavendish after crashing in sprint finish.
Cavendish's Omega Pharma-Quick-Step looked in control but one rider breaks clear - Fabian Cancellarar
Cavendish team out front with minutes to go but have they gone to early?

7km to go: Teams vying for best position for sprint finish to Harrogate.
Peloton together, no one breaking out from the pack but with just nine miles to go time's running out.
The peloton passes over the Grinton Moor earlier.
Peloton passing Ripon. Crowds today have been amazing. Very proud of all police officers and staff. Should be an exciting finish.— @McIntoshKenneth 05 July 2014
Stuart Minting in Ripon: "Peloton flashes through Ripon negotiating several roundabouts without incident with twenty kilometres to go to the finish."

Riders pass through Masham, home of The Black Sheep Brewery and Theakstons Brewery, but sadly no time to stop for a pint.
Scott Wilson in Harrogate: "Alessandro Pettachi, Mark Cavendish's main lead out rider is not part of the main leading group - a major blow to his hopes of winning the decisive sprint."
38km to go as the riders head for Ripon. Prime Minister David Cameron waits for the Tour to arrive at the finish in Harrogate.

Voigt has done it. The oldest rider in the Tour has secured the polko dot jersey for stage two after crossing the Grinton Moor line in first place.
Jens Voigt half a mile from top of Grinton Moor climb. First to cross line at top and he'll secure polko dot jersey for tomorrow's stage.
Third time riders in peloton have had to stop while the road clears ahead. This time on Grinton Moor climb.
Voigt two minutes ahead but peloton has split into two chasing packs. Tour has passed Muker, on its way to Gunnerside.
The Tour de France Publicity caravan on stage one of the Tour de France passes through the village of Reeth, Yorkshire.
Voigt has taken an early one point lead in the King of the Mountains classification after leading the way over the Buttertubs climb.

Staggeringly large crowds on the buttertubs for the tour looks like most of Yorkshire have come out to watch #TDF2014 #YorkshireGrandDepart— @FrancisNorman 05 July 2014
Aged 42, current leader on the road Jens Voigt is the oldest rider in this year's race. The German has worn the leader's yellow jersey twice before in the Tour de France. Voigt has just crossed the top of Buttertubs Pass, almost three-and-a-half minutes ahead of his closest rivals and more than four-and-a-half minutes in front of the peleton.

Jens Voigt moves 1 minute ahead of Edet and Jarrier, who are 4 minutes ahead of the peloton. Jens still found time to give a little wave to fans who shouted encouragement at him.
Hannah Chapman in Grinton Moor: "The anticipation is building and the atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is chanting 'Yorkshire, Yorkshire'. We've got some very ingenious farmers here, they've parked up on the side of the road and are sitting in their tractor buckets."

Here's the full details of Alberto Contador press conference ahead of tomorrow's opening stage
The last batch of teams are holding their pre-race press conferences in Leeds today.
Former champion Alberto Contador has described Chris Froome as "the big favourite", and also predicted that Sunday's second stage between York and Sheffield will lead to "some important time differences" in the general classification.
Orica Green Edge team leader Simon Gerrans has said that he is targeting a stage win on day two.
Much of the focus so far has been on tomorrow's stage between Leeds and Sheffield, but in terms of the make-up of the overall race, Sunday's stage should be an absolute cracker.

Saturday Spotlight in tomorrow's sport section profiles Mark Cavendish as he attempts to win the opening stage that finishes in Harrogate, the hometown of his mother, Adele.
If Cavendish wins, he moves into third position on his own on the all-time list of Tour stage wins, and will also claim the race's yellow jersey for the first time in his career.
Here's Paddy Power's current odds for Stage One:
Mark Cavendish 2-1, Marcel Kittel 21-20, Andre Greipel 5-1, Peter Sagan 7-1, Arnaud Demare 11-1, John Degenkolb 20-1.
