Lampre had Modolo in a great position coming into the last corner but then the crash happened. He also didn't have the legs in the end...

I underestimated Greipel big time. Thought he was gonna mess up when he got no teammates left, but damn he was strong. Impressive!
Yeah, was never close. Impressive display of power. BTW, thought that Ewan was positioned great (think he was the one on Greipels wheel but watching on a small screen in horrible quality so might be wrong) when the sprint started. Nowhere close at the finish though

Ewan did pretty good, it was an over 230km long gt stage.

Nobody crying over Greipel winning, hmhmhm
Totally man. Everyone's bias against the Germans is really showing. Good to see André give the French a win though! :cool:

I would have been impressed by anyone's win here. It took real skills to navigate the circuit, and real power to finish off the sprint. Had Kittel beens strong enough to contest and win, he would have shown a more diverse skill set. But he didn't, so he's still the same rider everyone thought he was.

Watching the overhead Ewan had to sprint a few times and was checked a couple of times as well, without that final check he would of finished closer but not close enough for a top 3 but still a good ride by the kid
