Boonen 5th already :eek:

Thought he'd be struggling a lot more after all his troubles this winter.

It's just a sprint, but still pretty impressive knowing his condition but i wouldn't take too many conclusions from it.

But the fact that he sprinted is for me way more surprising than his result.

Good to see Boonen already up and sprinting, especially since he "almost lost an arm."

Most of the usual suspects. Bet365, Sportingbet, Paddypower...

Fortin bagged me a few quid by finishing ahead of Meersman.

You can only play against the bookies.

They will all very likely have odds out again for stage 2 tonight.

Tomorrow its a bit hilly in the end.
But how many percent?
Is it too hard for Sprinters like Kittel?
But to easy for riders like Contador/Purito/Nibali?
So it might be perfect for Sagan?

Does anybode have a profile with metres on it?

"There was a crash with 2km to go. Bradley was not caught up in it but he was behind it and there was a little split in the peloton as the riders slowed down. So with the 3km rule he should be fine."


Apparently not.

138/142 Late crash?

Is the official stage classification?:confused:


EDIT: I see there was a crash.

1.6mi @ 8.3%avg according to http://www.strava.com/segments/al-jissah-climb-full-994454

Certainly not Kittel's cup of tea IMO.

That's more than enough to get rid of Kittel.

It will probably be between Degenkolb and Sagan. Perhaps even someone like Meersman or Gilbert.
