Default Who's the sprint King..?

I know the answer myself as he seems to have that extra kick, but would love to see a real close fought fight for green at the tour this year. Can the Germans et al stop Cav?

Cav is king because he is a great leader of WT
or
Cav is a great leader (the team work and he does not disappoint) so he is king

What have Greipel and Sagan done in this still very young season that tells us they are suddenly on par with Cavendish in sprinting?

Predict it will equal on stage wins between Cav and Sagan, Gripel well I think he'll be caught out hugging Cav.

Flat sprints = Cav
Uphill sprints = Sagan
Flat sprints just after a hill = Greipel

Did you watch the Tour last year by any chance? Anyway, Greipel should easily win this year most of the times they'll face each other.
