A hard day at the office awaits Columbia-HTC as they presumably will try to control the stage today for André Greipel. The german sprinter is not only one of the few remaining sprinters, he is also the main/only threat to Valverde in the points-competition. To win it he needs this stage to come down to a sprint, though.
Luckily for him the Haitch-boys know how to deliver.
