Giro d'Italia 3: SO close!

Sprint launched, Kittel in red is still so far!
Last corner. After a long day in the rain. Ben Swift. Damn: too early? but it looked done. Marcel Kittel came back from nowhere and it was twice in a row. 
Before, a big crash. In the heavy rain. Sore wet bodies back on bike. Bling still in Pink - and White - despite the bump, Tjallingi still in Blue and in the break again.
Again a big crowd along the street across the border: a caravan of love. We can be just one. Tonight.
