Think you've forgotten Stuyven there.

For me Impey is the favourite for the stage here.

That must have been a really frustrating situation for Costa. First, Ineos think it's their job to decide who can break away and who can't so they spread out across the road, which meant that Costa had to wait an extremely long time until he could find physical space to break away.

Then he almost catches the break on the steep wall which of course does not have a descent so he has to give up...

Funniest scenario would be that KOM competition would be decided in Champs-Elyseés stage which has two 4th category climbs.

Lotto Soudal's defending it nicely so far.
We'll see when some pure climbers jump into the mix.
the new jersey sponsor would surely like it to be decided at the Champs-Elyseés. It would mean it's a matter of point.

A good question; at least we can watch the Wimbledon final without missing out on much.

Watch Rui have a fit when his DS told him the others wont wait becasue he doesnt contribute to breakaways !!

UAE will be out for revenge

Yeah, it's a decent stage, but for bastille day?

Will the most exciting action on this stage be Flecha on the moto trying to interview every DS in the cars whilst trying not to fall off?

Thursdays & Fridays stages as well as Saturdays & Bastille days stages could've been swapped maybe!

Bora and Sunweb decided to have a day of. Sunweb is probably tired chasing for Bling's minor placings and Bora needed to rest Sagan after yesterday stage where he was hanging on for dear life. I expected Schachmann in the break not Posti though. He is anonymous this Tour.

Tiesj will kill them on the hill and take a magnificent solo win.

Ivan Garcia looks good as does Traknik

As they have 2 you'd think they'd be favourites
