Le Tour – Stage 5

Tour de FranceRouen to Saint-Quentin

Distance: 196.5 kilometers.

André Greipel has taken his second stage in a row to go one up in his private battle with Mark Cavendish. This will continue as this is a much flatter Tour than last year.

Marcel Kittel ( Ger – ARG – 211 ) withdrew before the start of the stage, so the field is down to 194 riders. He was obviously having problems yesterday as he was listed in the second to the last position which is not normal for a team’s number 1 rider.
