There are a fair amount of sprint stages, especially for durable sprinters alá Degenkolb and Sagan. I don't think thats a problem.
But none of the durable sprinters are here, me thinks?

A couple lower rate guys. No big names, but some smaller names with good chances today. This should be more fun than usual, a but like Sbaragli's stage win last year.

Meanwhile Nacer won in Hamburg in bunch sprint with quite nasty move against Caleb Ewan.
He was penalized for that. Ewan is the winner.
What a train wreck Nacer wins. He can't be a sprinter. He can't be a cyclist like this.

It was one of the most legit sprints I've seen recently, nothing extraordinarily wrong with that move.

It's just being blown out of proportion ''coz Bouhanni'' and, sadly, the commissaires have let themselves be influenced by the hype.

Agree, it's ridiculous. He has a reputation and even the smallest issue will get him disqualified.

If he do these type of legit moves in TDF with 6 people sprinting for a win we have some real casualties.
Yes Caleb could avoid this time but for me it was not legit sprint at all for me.

Grande Tiago!

Portugal has some aggressive riders.
Gonçalves for the win. Late insane acceleration.
 
Tiago Machado!

It would be sweet to see him winning, he always tries so hard but eventually can't take a big win. I'm glad to see that Machado hasn't lost that attacking flair after so many time being invisible as a domestique.

Litterally every team with a better sprinter than Basso fancying a sprint in this field. Too bad. Had hoped for a few more and strong attacks on that hill.
Yeah I don't get it.
 
Great to see a chaotic sprint - Etixx really the only team that had some kind of decent organisation in the last 2km.

Also amazing that there were two separate crashes in the middle of the bunch going at 60km/h, and only two riders went down.
