Aye. He couldn't have finished any quicker if he was trying to escape from a pretend Welshman in a van.

Don't want to really get involved with that but yeah he is certainly the man on form. I wonder if Cav on his best would match him at the moment.

Kittel is huge favorite for the sprint stages he starts. What I'm saying is: as soon as the mountains will show up, Kittel won't stay in the race for much longer. He's not up for 3 weeks, not even 2. He will want to show up in TDF too. And the later sprint stages will be up for grabs.

Agree. Hoping Greipel will stick around for those and Kittel has a rest. :)

The idea is that I top this in the very end so nobody be scared that I'm not leading or so.
