Cannondale will be forced to race quite hard, early in the stage imo if they want Sagan to win. I wouldn't be surprised if a guy like Chavanel breaks away on the final climbs and wins.

Sky to test honesty of yesterday's Contador words? :)
Maybe:D

Anyway if Sagan is fit (the crash looked pretty bad) I hope that Cannondale will ride as hard as they can through cat3 and cat2 to drop sprinters.It is a good chance for Sagan and Kristoff.
Still I won't be surprised if Cav is there.

GreenEdge and Cannondale have an obligation to ride hard on the climbs. If they don't, I would be very disappointed.

Not a breakaway but I could see one rider maybe getting away on the last climb and hanging on. The usual suspects and any early K.O.M contenders who fancy their chances with any gap theyve made. One could hang on.

Navardauskas I think could figure quite high up, Gilbert may well have a go.

Chavanel and Gerrans will attack on the final climb. It should be highly entertaining if the riders ride with common sense! :p

I hope he takes it nice and easy today. Although whether it's in his nature to do so is another matter...
Tony's dream was to wear yellow.

However, even if he was 100% fit this wouldn't be possible anymore as lots of Omega riders are in front of him in the GC. So no chance Tony can take yellow after the TTT. Therefore i suppose he'll be in the grupetto today. Helping Kittel maybe;)
