Tour de France Stage 5: Greipel wins the sprint in Amiens

Martin maintains maillot jaune as peloton splits in two

This report was first published on Cyclingnews.

After three days of distinctly Classics-flavoured racing, some semblance of normality was restored to the Tour de France on stage 5, where André Greipel emerged victorious from a bunch sprint over Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Mark Cavendish (Etixx-Quickstep).

It was still a windswept, crash-ridden stage from Arras to Amiens, with the peloton split in two and most of the main overall favourites in front. Tony Martin maintained his overall lead thanks to the inevitable bunch gallop, where Greipel outpaced all his rivals for to take a second stage win in this year’s Tour.

In the face of a strong headwind, going early was always going to be perilous and Kristoff was first to launch, followed by Arnaud Démare and Mark Cavendish, who had lost the wheel of lead-out man Mark Renshaw. Greipel timed it perfectly to come through for the win, with Peter Sagan on his wheel taking second ahead of Cavendish.
