Tour de France Stage 4

German sprint ace Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) made it three wins in four days, blasting first across the finish of stage 4 from Le Touquet-Paris-Plage to Lille. Katusha's Alexander Kristoff of Norway slotted second, with reigning French national champ Arnaud Demare (FDJ.fr) third. For the second day in a row there was no change in the yellow jersey, with Astana's Vincenzo Nibali finishing safely in the bunch. Defending Tour de France champ wasn't so lucky. The Team Sky leader crashed early in the stage, suffering numerous cuts and abrasions, but still managed to finish on the same time as the main field.
