Who will win Stage 4?

Are his handlers trying to develop him into a sprinter? I mean, his dad was pretty solid in the sprints so perhaps he has the genes for it... but I wouldn't have expected him in the top 10 in any group sprint in Qatar with the names that are present... I honestly wouldn't expect him to take part in the sprints at all.
I thought he was going for the whole TT/cobbled route as a rider... taking part in sprints has taken me a bit off guard.

gave him a lot of confidence. We shall see when he gets a chance to race in the adult version. Quickstep also puts lots of guys up in the mix but only Boonen and Steegmans are looking like they have the punch to win. Phinney is like a Jr Cancellara in the saddle speed and power that opens big gaps when he is near the front. Bos has torque that is really impressive.For such boring race layouts I am glad to see all these drag races at the end. Speaking of drags,I was hoping to see Wiggins do some early climbing so that when the press starts questioning if his tour result was a fluke he will crack. He is going to pull a Sastre

That's because the whole place is a building site.dimspace said:Those pesky arabs and their nails on the road joke... such pranksters
