Day Two for the Sprinters

Today was the second and likely last day for the sprinters. Barring something crazy, it was going to be a sprint. It was a calm day overall until the final. There was a big crash in the second last corner that brought probably 3/4 of the field to a near stop. I was happy to roll in easy to the line knowing we'd all be on the same time due to the 3km rule. Danny narrowly avoided the crash and matched his result from yesterday to come in 6th again. Tomorrow will likely be a smaller group finish with a couple categorized climbs in the last 50km. Sure hope/expect we'll be represented in that final group and/or the breakaway if it goes to the final and figure out how to try and give ourselves a chance to win the stage. We'll see what happens!
