In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert: a Cavendish/Greipel duel in Saint-Quentin?

    In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert: a Cavendish/Greipel duel in Saint-Quentin?After a one day absence due to unexpected circumstances, Stéphane Goubert is back on velowire.com in this new edition of In the Tour with Stéphane Goubert at the end of the 4th stage between Abbeville and Rouen.

    André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) wins this stage after a sprint which was disturbed by a crash and we're already looking forward to stage number 5 which will most probably also end in a bunch sprint.


    The 4th stage between Abbeville and Rouen over a distance of 214.5 kilometers saw a breakaway right from the start but everyone knew it would end in a sprint. After a crash in the last 3 kilometers which involved riders like Mark Cavendish (Team Sky) and Robbie Hunter (Garmin-Sharp), André Greipel, nicknamed the gorilla, won the stage.

    This crash thus prevented Greipel and Cavendish to fight the sprint in a man-to-man race and Stéphane Goubert thinks this duo fight will be what we'll see in the sprint of the 5th stage, which starts in Rouen, at the finish in Saint-Quentin (click here to see all details of the race route of the 5th stage of the Tour de France 2012 between Rouen and Saint-Quentin).

  1. On est sans doute en train de voir les dernières heures de Cavendish sur ce Tour vu qu'il va sans doute abandonner. Donc la lutte pour le maillot vert sera entre Sagan, qui est en train d'assommer la concurrence, Greipel et Goss. C'est un des enseignements de la première semaine du Tour 2012 : http://leyaourtdusport.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/tour-de-france-2012-bilan-de-la-1ere-semaine/
