Tour de France 2014 Favourites stage 6: Back to the fast men

Marcel KittelThursday July 10th, 2014: Stage 6 travels from Arras to Reims and has bunch sprint written all over it. Who'll have the best legs after yesterday's cobbles? (Slideshow route/profile)

Not many are expecting the sprint stages of this year’s Tour to be divided up between anyone other than Kittel and Greipel. That is, divided? Greipel may find it difficult to get a look in with his competitor seemingly at a higher level. It may even be the case that we see total and utter Kittel dominance, just like Cav had from 2008-2011.

Hanging to the wheels and hoping for glory will be brilliant all-rounder Sagan, as well as young sprinters like French champion Arnaud Démare (22) and Dutchman Danny van Poppel (20).
