Tour de France 2015: stage five – photo gallery

Andre Greipel doubles up with explosive sprint victory

Andre Greipel conquered the wind, the rain and his sprinting rivals on stage five of the Tour de France to prove he is still a major contender when it comes to sprint finishes.

On a day which saw the peloton battered by the increment weather which was also a feature of the earlier French stages 12 months ago, Greipel emerged triumphant after a route designed to pay homage to the victims of World War II, passing many war memorials on the fields of the Somme.
