What do you mean? After JTL has won the first of his eighteen LBLs in April and then dominated the Giro, this is the stage where he'll establish a decisive lead after a solo break established in the second kilometre, a lead which he'll extend all the way to Paris.

I live near Sheffield, whilst our climbs might lack for length they make up for in short nasty steep sections :D

Think I'll watch them suffering up Jenkin Road.

Those first two stages are really going to be weather dependent, up on the pennines bad weather is kond of magnified, generally should be OK at this time of year though.
