Le Tour 2014, stage 6: Greipel outsprints the field in the rain

Thursday,  07/10/14  11:22 PM

Andre Greipel outsprints the field to win stage 6After yesterday's wet and wild stage over the Paris-Roubaix cobbles, today shaped up to be a rather boring parade ending in a field sprint, and so it was.  Most of the field licked their wounds all day, but there were a few more crashes adding injury to injury.  The expected field sprint did materialize, but this time Andre Greipel triumphed, as Marcel Kittel sat this one out.

Tomorrow is another flat stage, but there are a couple of climbs at the end, so it may be a day for a breakaway to succeed, or more likely a chance for Peter Sagan or Alejandro Valverde.
