Tour de France stage 5: Sarlat la Caneda - Bordeaux (174 km)
Another really flat stage, this time with only one single categorized climb. The stage starts in Sarlat la Caneda and finishes in Bordeaux. A bunch sprint would be almost 100% certain.

Tour de France stage 6: Teste de Buch - Saint Jean de Luz (207 km)
The next flat stage with an extremely high chance of a bunch sprint, but its the last one before the pyrenees, so I am really looking forward to stage 7. Although the stage has a pretty boring profile it is still more interesting than the last stage IMO. Thats because the only climb of the day is much closer to the finish than yesterdays, what could also cause the one or other attack of riders who don't see a chance for their team in a bunch sprint. This climb is also the first pyrenees pass of the tour although that sounds much more difficult than it actually is.
btw there is hardly any chance for cross wind although the stage follows the coast but as far as I know the wind is always pretty slight in this area.
