Uhmmm... I think we need a results post as a warmer up to today's stats-nerd overdose (wait for it!)

The Wolfpack #quickstep simply wolfpacking the sprint, with 4 riders up there where other teams had 2 (bora) and 1 all the others.
From the results, all the other sprint trains apparently (maybe not #bora) derailed long before the sprint. Gaviria was not the fastest today but he had the team to make his speed count.

Also noted how "fading" sprinters #katusha Kittel and #uae Kristoff suddenly are ... almost there again (and that, quite unsupported in the final, as far as I could see). And  #rainbow #bora Sagan, back at whaht he is beyond doubt best at - 2nd place stage finishes in the Tour de France  :P

The GC was absolutely carnage due to the last 10 km or so, with all the 3 big favorites #movistar Quintana, #bmc Porte, #sky Froome loosing time - and my comment to that is in the next, slightly more nerdy post...   :-x
