Tomorrow its a bit hilly in the end.
But how many percent?
Is it too hard for Sprinters like Kittel?
But to easy for riders like Contador/Purito/Nibali?
So it might be perfect for Sagan?

Does anybode have a profile with metres on it?

"There was a crash with 2km to go. Bradley was not caught up in it but he was behind it and there was a little split in the peloton as the riders slowed down. So with the 3km rule he should be fine."
Apparently not.

WIGGINS Bradley SKY PROCYCLING 4h 06' 20" + 01' 21"

138/142 Late crash?

Is the official stage classification?


EDIT: I see there was a crash.

1.6mi @ 8.3%avg according to http://www.strava.com/segments/al-ji...mb-full-994454

Certainly not Kittel's cup of tea IMO.

That's more than enough to get rid of Kittel.

It will probably be between Degenkolb and Sagan. Perhaps even someone like Meersman or Gilbert.

Crash in the last 2k which he broke to avoid apparently. Sky website says he shouldn't lose time because of the 3k rule so may be a bit of a dispute about it. Kind of strange that few other seem to have lost time because of it
