Very interesting course with wind. Up to 75 km/h.

There will be a lot of echelons this week.

If so then 2.5km at 6.9%
Cheers for that.

Also good work Lupetto with the TT profile. The parcours looks good this year. Hard to call a winner whcih is always good.

Greipel should snatch 2 stage wins.
GC between Talansky and Monfort.
My old car for live coverage please.

I'm curious which will be the second stage win for Greipel.
In my opinion only stage one had a change for sprinters.

Thinking the last stage. Devil is in the details however, and we don't have many of those.

I don't think any sprinter will survive the climb just before they enter Grasse.
Probably the peloton will be split way before that, passing Côte des Tuillières and Col du Tanneron...

GC contenders will have a nice opportunity to have a final attempt to improve their positions

Could be. Looks 50/50 to me. Good stage design.

Stage 3 of this race is probably the most beautiful scenery we'll see (or won't see ) all year in a cycling race...

So, no real live TV coverage from this race again, this year?

Would be sad - great startlist and parcours.

Glad that at least Haut Var will have coverage, at least I hope so, if France3 or so haven´t dropped it.
