It's stage 12, and the competition for last place is well under way!
At 2:09 is Dimitry Muravyev, a Kazhak national on Astana. He has almost 4 minutes on the Canadian Svein Tuft (Orica Greenedge), riding his first Tour de France at age 36! Hot on his heels are Jeromé Cousin (FR, Europcar) and Veelers (Kittel's lead-out man).
At the risk of betting early, I say Veelers. He should make the time cuts, as Kittel will need him for the final sprint in Paris.
