Tour de France 2015 Favourites stage 2 - Sprinters and/or echelons

The 2nd stage of the 2015 Tour de France is extremely flat. As the second half of the race is on the Dutch coast the only thing that could spoil a sprinters party is crosswinds. Cavendish, Kristoff, or ....? (Slideshow route/profile)

The main favourite for the sprint stages in the Tour is Cavendish with Alexander Kristoff and, maybe, Nacer Bouhanni waiting in the shades. In case of echelons Cav looks best prepared for the task at hand, as his Belgium squad Etixx-Quick Step is a master in the discipline.

Outsiders will be John Degenkolb, André Greipel, Arnaud Démare, Peter Sagan, Michael Matthews, Bryan Coquard and Sam Bennett.
