    GC riders take a break and the sprinters take over. If Stage 3 is anything to go by this will be a fairly boring affair with the usual excitement at the end. I suspect MvdP won't be riding for his team mate this time now as all he has to ride for is the Ciclamino so surely he goes for the victory here? Also if Girmay's performance on Stage 3 is anything to go by it does look like he can compete with the big boys when it comes to sprinting. Anyway the two big guns are the expected favourites - Ewan and Cavendish and I can't help but show my bias here and hope Ewan can do it. I just can't like Cavendish especially since he decided to sell his team mate down the swanny the other day despite winning. What happens if he loses? Despite all this I've backed Demare for the value.


    Caleb Ewan 9/4

    Mark Cavendish 9/2

    Biniam Girmay 5/1

    Matthieu Van Der Poel 7/1

    Arnaud Demare 9/1

    Fernando Gaviria 10/1

    Giacomo Nizzolo 14/1

    Phil Bauhaus 17/1

    Magnus Cort Nielsen 22/1
