2017 Tour de France: Kittel wins for 4th time, Stage 11 Preview
Stage 10 result: easy win number 4 for Marcel Kittel
No change overall: Chris Froome still in Yellow
Green Jersey Overall: Marcel Kittel consolidates his lead
Yesterday panned out as expected: a small break went away to be duly caught before Bergerac where Marcel Kittel comfortably won the sprint – his fourth stage victory in this year's tour. Kittel now has just over 100 points more than Michael Matthews in this competition. Kittel picked up 63 points on the day to Matthews paltry 9.
Stage 11: Eymet to Pau 203.5 kms
This looks to be a very similar stage to yesterday – a small break will get away easily only to be caught shortly before the finish in Pau where Kittel take his 5th stage win of this Tour. The only complication is that there is some light rain forecast for the middle of the stage and at the end plus a little more wind than yesterday. However, this is likely to be another quiet stage.
