Time to figure out who the fastest man really is. Greipel should be better after 11 days, I reckon Ewan is starting to get spend, I don't know about Gav's recovery. It really is a tossup, but going with Gaviria since I think he is the fastest of those 3 normally.

Maybe its time for a new sprinter to get his wheel in front like Mareczko or Bennett

André Greipel will quit the Giro after tomorrow, as that will be the last sprinter stage. On the one hand I can understand, but on the other hand I find it disrepectful to the race. Last year he quit while wearing the red jersey, which was really a disgrace IMO.

What do you guys think about it?

this year he said he would give it a go in case he wears the Ciclamino at that point. He won't though, so he is going home. Lotto proposed Wellens to do the same but he preferred to do altitude training.

"Dutch television station NOS that Andre Greipel will head home from the Giro d'Italia after today's stage"

As this ______________________________ is tomorrow's stage profile it seems a strange decision.
They've changed that to 'after tomorrow's stage'
