This is essentially a very flat stage and one for the pure sprinters out there. However with much of the day spent on coastal roads and with the forecast for rain and strong winds, this really could play havoc with the peleton. If the forecast is right this could be an unexpectedly exciting and very tough day for the riders.
Is no surprise to see Kittel so short, and if as expected it comes down to a large bunch sprint he will be very very hard to beat. But with what i said about the weather i'm loathed to take such a short price for now, and will wait to bet in running in the final hour or so, as he is unlikely to be any shorter then than he is now.
