Stage 4 of the tour de France was uneventful for for the first 206 km, with a lone breakaway from the stsrt easily moped up by the peleton. The sprint trains got ready for the power sprint. The final km result in crashes for 2 British the first with the Yellow jersey crashing, but thankfully got back on his bike to ride home. The major one involved Mark Cavendish who got elbow by Peter Sagan into the barriers, he is nursing a shoulder injury and it maybe the end of his tour. Sagan’s tour is defintely over with the race organisers disqualifying the world champion from the race.
Stage 5 today sees the riders leave Vittel and onto the first mountain top finish of this years tour. The day ends with a Cat 1 climb at Le Planche Des Belles FIlles. The finish is a short steepp test in the Vogues mountains. The final climb is a 8.5 average gradient but in some areas it hits 20 per cent! this will shake up the GC riders.
