Couldn't find a thread for the race, so I decided to make one. First real test between Cav and Kittel this year. It's not P-N, but at least we have a live transmitted race while we wait :)

I saw that some stages actually go outside of the city of Dubai a bit in stage 2 and 3, along the shore as well. Maybe we can get some Qataresque echelons this time around.

Kittel bossed the sprint, Viviani almost went backwards (against the big boys) and Consonni finished 8th in his first race as a pro while working for Modolo.

Delivered perfectly so nobody will be able to beat him.
Groenewegen had to work hard to reach Kittels wheel and he did that once Kittel started his sprint and wether he's capable of passing Kittel is allready a big question mark, but now he allready had to work way to hard to reach that position.
I didnt really follow other sprinters as it's hard enough to track 2 sprinters in the final 4km. Quite lucky it was nr 1 and 2.

Also lottonl messed up. Didnt do any work during the stage and were completely scattered once the final 10km were reached. So they shouldve been fresh to give Groenewegen a good leadout. The again it's easier said then done.

Cavendish lost the plot of sprint at a moment and keeping the third is an appropriate description of his result.
He lost the plot in the sprint when he realised his rear tyre was flat :lol:

Just read that and seen the photo, hit a pothole with around 3k to go. That's some effort to lose virtually no ground in the final to Kittel.
