The Gorilla Thrilla

(l to r): Greipel, Degenkolb, Kristoff, Sagan.

Andreil Greipel is on fire, with huge help from his Lotto Soudal team, and duly won like the sprinting powerhouse that he is winning his third stage and ninth in his Tour career. The two that are slugging it out for the green jersey are really at the opposite sides of the fence. Sagan wearer of the green jersey leads with 360 pts and without a stage win (since 2013) and frustrated. Greipel is second with 316 pts has three stages and happy.

And lastly...

Maybe it's time to have the unwritten rule with spectators with piss that the whole bunch stops and takes revenge.

- Simon Geschke, Giant-Alpecin.
