2.7km @ 11.2%, is a Cat 1 climb :confused:
I was going to point this out too, I really don't understand the category system in these races.
As far as I know, Lacets de Montvernier originally also should have been a 1st category climb. (if you klick on "Mountain passes and hills" on the official website, it is still listed as a 1st category climb)

It's not far away frome the finish, it wouldn't be the same if it was after 20k, and obviously, it's a 1 week race not a GT

Yep, they're just trying to maximise the chance of a good GC rider taking the mountain jersey

payback time by Froomey. Nibali looked on his limit already today. So he might get dropped. But who knows, maybe the resurrection of Bardet again :D

I thought Nibali looked like he was on a training ride, and had no interest in testing his limit at this point in June. I saw Nibali do this live at the Tour of California a few years ago, and then race great at the TDF 2 months later.

Perault, in contrast, look frazzled and like he cracked.

Can't wait for this stage. Gutted it isn't being shown live, at least here in The UK

Froome and TVG to stay locked together and fade at the pointy end

Bardet and Martin to launch solo attacks. Only to be caught by Yates or Costa

Or Movistar will obliterate everyone
 
S. Yates keeps surprising me. He has great shape all the way since PV. I thought he might crack like Alaphilippe, but he is still going strong. I'm interested what he can do tomorrow. He is in contention for the win at this point. Besides him the strongest climbers are TvG, Froome, Bardet and also surprisingly Intxausti, who is still flying on his Giro legs. Rain is forecasted for tomorrow so expect long range attacks and carnage again. The GC is still very open.

It's on ITV4 and has been all week
 
I have absolutely no idea how tomorrow will go, everyone's form seems up in the air.

I'd love to see Simon Yates have another great day, if Nibali, Valverde and Costa repeat their efforts from stage 5 he could be in yellow!

Otherwise Froome to hit back and get a stage win.

Found that out earlier this week, but had already forgotten it. Thank you!

Now where did I put my Sanatogen...
