German Marcel Kittel was once again a cut above as he claimed his fifth stage victory in this year's Tour de France, winning a crash-ridden 11th stage in emphatic style Wednesday. The Quick-Step Floors rider, who now has 14 stages to his name, left it late to launch his sprint but easily beat Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Norway's Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data).Boasson Hagen raised his arms as if he had won but was comprehensively beaten by Kittel and Groenewegen after 203.5 kilometers from Eymet.Fuglsang was involved in a crash at the feed zone and went to the medical car to have his wrist checked while his Astana teammate Dario Cataldo was forced to abandon because of a wrist injury after the Italian also fell.
