Prologue - Head to head
This seems pretty straight forward to me. Greipel has the far bigger engine and has more greed to also perform in such events, while Cavendish is of course faster in the short distance. Greipel is now on his second Tour and he seems really fully ready for it, i'm sure in his mind he thinks that his first tour last year was for learning, this one for winning more.
I just see a mental and physical advantage for Greipel here. GL
