So after the first mountaintop finish of the race the peloton has a couple of sprint stages.
Marcel Kittel ($2/$1.40) is favourite to get number two this race. After a chaotic stage 4, he is ready to get back into the winners books.
Arnaud Demare ($3.50/$1.55) has the duck off his back now. That will count for something.
Andre Greipel ($6.50/$1.85) is the second fastest sprinter in the race now. Needs the right lead out & he will win.
Nacer Bouhanni ($13/$2.50) can only win if everyone else falls
Dylan Groenewegan ($13/$2.75) was in good form prior to this race. Hasn’t shown it but has a good leadout so if the form is there,he is a good chance.
Alexander Kristoff ($13/$2.50) needs it harder as he doesn’t have the right leadout.
Michael Matthews ($21/$4) was boxed in stage 2 & was caught behind the crash stage 4. With good luck finally he can challenge.
