Lets hope there is some agresive climbing making the race as epic as the profile and the preview!

movistar and omega will set an average speed of 40 km/h on the first two hours of racing,cav will be in big trouble.

Phil already said he wants to get Cav outside the time limit. But they only have 4 people...

Nicely done.

Col d Angel is what can really make this stage. Forget, Plateau de Beille, Alpe d huez, Galibier, Mont Ventoux, this is Le Tours Zoncolan (or maybe its Finnestre) though its gradients obviously dont match up to those standards.

+1 Rolland has impressed me more than anyone in this Tour. Though if you have him there, you also have to have Vanendert and there never was no magnificent 9.

I thought he said that about the Alpe stage, not this one. The Alpe stage is so short, so it'd be perfect if OPL could set a high tempo up Galibier

Problem is they don't have anyone left to set a high tempo up Galibier. Lang? Roelandts? Greipel? Sieberg? Don't think so

Yeah, I don't think Vanendert will want to sacrifice himself to set a tempo up Galibier.

Also, the Alpe d'Huez stage, just like the Lourdes stage, will be a "short mountain stage", with 3% more time limit than the "normal mountain stages". So it's actually more likely to get Cavendish eliminated on the Galibier stage.
