They have Blythe, but he's certainly not one of the best sprinters here.
Guess i have more faith in Phinney, he went for the bonus second at stage one, that might be a way. And you newer now about the crosswinds.

blythe and phinney can both sprint well enough that one theoretically one could target the intermediates and the other maybe for the final. Yes they wont outpace cav, degenkolb etc in a normal sprint but it may split up again tomorrow and the teams clearly going well

Stannard was there, Sutton + Rasch were left behind.

Indeed, you're right. Don't know why I thought it was Stannard, but I blame my low-quality stream

So, who do you guys see as the favourite now? Can Cav make up for the seconds in bonusses? Or can Phinney take the win? Too bad there isn't much wind on the coming stages, that would make some good racing.
