Definitely for GC contenders.
Valverde , Cunego, Gasparotto (if he hangs on) to take it on the line, Froome, VDB, Betancur, Kišerlovski, Talansky, Pinot, Rolland, Porte?, Gesink, Kruijswijk, Brajkovič, Kreuziger, Anton to be in the group.
Worth watching.

Come on Rolland! He's been attacking all week, now make this attack the one that counts. Also would like to see Talansky do well here. Although I suspect we will have Sky-train up the entire climb before Froome rides away in the final km's.

I don't see Froome ride away, he'll need someone to guide him down the descend to the finish.

I think valverde will take this one. Even if froome and/or Porte manage to drop him on the climb he should still be able to close a 30 second difference on them on the descent imo.
30 second is too much in 8 km descent.
Froome is better than his rivals imo, but he will face in front Valverde, Rui Costa, Kiserlowski, Pinot, Rolland,...in good form, so it not going to be easy...
Valverde is better with good weather conditions.
Anyway he just need to take some little time to Tony Martin and keep the others wheel with the help of Porte... and that way sound not so difficult.

Woops, stupid me, completely spaced it was a descent finish. :eek:
Regardless,it wouldn't surprise me to much to see Froome do like Porte did in his Pais Vasco stage win.

Prolly have 2 Sky on the final podium.

Reckon Pinot, Valverde and Betancur will climb the GC.

Pity I can't watch it live.

Where's the best place to stream this live in the UK? Do Sporza have it? Don't care what language the commentary is in.

I usually rely on Eurosport but obviously they aren't showing it and I won't be giving any money to Sky.

Sporza does broadcast it. :)
