On cyclingcols.com you can find more details of the climbs. Like the last climb of stage 2, the awesome MTF of stage 3, the 2x challenged last climb of stage 4 and the last climb of stage 5.

Looks good, doesn't it?
Exaggerated profiles again.

stage 1 is not so bad. stage 2 the climb isn't too hard, but could be a decent stage none the less, descending into the finish.
Awesome might be overdoing port-Aine but it should be a good stage still; good that they have 3 decent climbs prior to this.
Also a couple decent stages proceeding this, nothing too difficult but still.

With Wiggins doing P-N and his team riding for him there, the race will be controlled on so many stages. Brajkovic and Menchov will also be 2 other riders who will want to keep the race together ( especially after Menchov on the Mende in the 2010 TDF was not great )

He finished 10 seconds down on Contador/Purito... I don't see how that's bad. And it's hard to control the race on a climb like the Montee Jalabert, it's just every man for himself.

Wiggins is probably more likely to be in trouble on that climb.
