Jose Been on Twitter: "Alexander Kristoff (KAT) did take the start in today’s stage in Paris-Nice"

Maybe you read it as didn't? Or do you have another source?
According to the official ticker Seeldraeyers is the only DNS. Tourdejose probably takes her info from there.

on twitter someone said he DNS, that's why i wrote "apparently"

The official PN twitter page only mentioned Seeldrayers as DNS so Been must be right

Vacansoleil team director Hilaire Van der Schueren told http://www.letour.fr why Boeckmans had given up on the breakaway: "We were hoping for a ten-man break but there are only three of them. There's a lot of wind so we decided it was better for him to save strength for the finis as he is a good sprinter." In any case, the Vacansoleil team have won all the intermediate sprints held in this edition so far.
Did the weather gods hear our prayers?

It's a headwind, not a crosswind. Also the final loop apparently is through some woodlands so not much chance we get echelons. I expect a slow, simple sprintstage.

I know it's a headwind, I meant the loop, but if there's shelter I guess it doesn't matter.

We might get some fun and games on the 25-30 km section where they turn more the SW - should get a bit of a crosswind there. Let's just hope it's open and exposed (and that they decided to race).

from OPQS twitter :
"After winning the 1st intermediate sprint Boeckmans dropped from the breakaway. Smukulis and Christensen continue"

It seems Boeckmans read my previous post :D
they have to put an end to riders "reading and tweeting" during the race.. or at least while on breakaway or sprints.

Sounds like they're going for the prize for most boring stage ever.
We can expect a really nervous final, once again. Always the same with these super slow starts.
 
On sporza they had contacted Hilaire VDS, DS of Vacansoleil :

they attend echelons at the end of the stage and this way De Gendt will be in the first group of echelons.

He wanted to break away already with Boeckmans...:D

Go Thomas !!
