I usually calculate my points in advance (right after they're posted on the tdf site) and I think I might be missing some 5 points. Sagan, Boasson Hagen and Cancellara might have received slightly less points than they deserved. Here go the calculations:

Sagan got 51 points but he should have gotten 53 (35 for the stage win + 8 for his 8th place at the intermediate sprint + 5 points for having the green jersey + 3 points for being third in the KOM classification + 2 points for being the fourth youngster = 53 points)
Boasson Hagen got 40 points, but should have gotten 42 (30 for being second on the stage + 6 for being 5th on GC + 2 for being fourth on the green jersey classification + 4 for being second in the young riders competition = 42 points)
Cancellara got 35 points but should have gotten 36 (22 for 4th place on the stage + 10 for yellow jersey + 4 for being second in the points competition = 36).

I know, 5 points is not much, but might prove useful at some point... Could you please check it out? I might even get up to 13th in the overall yearly classification  1

I think you're right, and actually, the finish line was also a cat 4 climb, so another 5 points to Sagan. I think there are some delays with all the crashes so hopefully they'll amend the points soon - there's also a transfer issue which some people have pointed out on other threads so my guess is they're feverishly beavering away ad road.cc towers to get everything straightened out...

Finish line KoM points don't count, just like additional sprint points at finish lines don't.

Why did Lancaster get 7 points?
