Great sprint by cav although I think greipel was actually stronger.

I think there was a split in the peloton
Tbf Greipel had the perfect position. He still had someone in front of him who was about to accelerate when he decided to go. Cav was just stronger, enough to come around Greipel and take the win

Greipel's team seemed really awful in the last kilometers. Boasson Hagen and Renshaw on the other hand were bossing it for Cavendish.
Who's to blame for Kittel's poor showing - himself or his team? Also I've seen close photo finishes before but that one had the biggest difference in speed between the two riders - Cav was visibly much faster in the last couple of metres. Fair play to cav because I thought he'd suffer big time today after digging deep at the end of yesterday's stage. I guess 200km piano gave him plenty time to recover. At least we got 10 seconds or so of action...
