The action was captured first by a Shimano Sport Camera mounted on Giant-Shimano lead-out man Koen de Kort’s saddle, where you can look back on John Degenkolb and sprint rivals Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan jostling for position.

The footage gives an insight into the skill and nerve of sprinting with the world’s best.
