It's interesting to watch the top four's final 200m. Modolo and Ewen are even with eachother, Greipel and Nizzolo in their respective wheels. Greipel and Nizzolo both move at the same time, and suddenly Greipel is ahead by a bike length.

Ewen's sprint was nothing to do with his in/experience. He just doesn't have the power to turn the pedals. Good job by his team, though.

Greipel is just better than the rest. Him and Kittel make up the Froome/Contador/Quintana level of sprinters.

Why all the Ewan hate? He's 21...it's okay if he's getting beaten by these guys right now. He will improve.
Yep I think he is doing pretty well for a 21 year old
Thing is that sprinters develop totally differently from other specialists. Sprinters start to dominate from very early on. Gavaria, who is like the same age, was there at the pointy end of MSR.

He will be 22 in two months but dont worry, he will keep winning all those Aussie pre-season crits and stages at the TDU.

I have to agree with the other poster about the lead-out. Very impressive!
