Dauphiné Stage 4 Spoiler

Sprint stage with a sprint finish.

1. John Degenkolb 2. Boassen Hagen 3. Haedo 4. Vaitkus 5. Bonnet 6. Farrar

Another win for the big boy. This guy is something. If you get a chance have a look at the overhead video of the last 300m. Move over Mark this guy is dynamite.

No change in GC.

Last 5km (french)

His "bobblehead" when he sprints is hilarious.

I like his sprinting style because the gargantuan effort is so obvious and transparent! I like this new big guy.

HTC-Highroad seems to be some kind of sprinter farm. First they sprouted Mark Cavendish (remember way back when he was the new kid on the block?), then they sprouted Greipel, and now Degenkolb. Hopefully, Cavendish and Degenkolb can get along better than he and Greipel - though that shouldn't be hard.
