Tour de France 2017
Stage 7: Troyes - Nuits-Saint-Georges, 214km
Marcel Kittel (Quickstep Floors) makes it a hattrick after phoot finish with Edvald Boassen Hagen (Dimension Data).
A long day in the saddle culmimnated wiht the closest of finishes between Marcel Kittel looking for a hattrick of wins and Edvald Boasen Hagen looking to boost the morale of a team bruised from the loss of Mark Cavendish.
The Norwegian was in a strong position in the run into the line but in the most agonising of turnarounds the German lunged just enough according toi race offcials to snatch the win. For a second time aftet the Cavendish-Sagan clash on stage four fans went into overdrive debating the result with opinion falling heavily in favour of calling it a dead heat for the record books. Offcilals though remained unmoved and it was Kittel who mounted the podium.
Chris Froome (Sky) crossed the line safely in the following peloton to retain yellow.
