Looks like Sagan territory. It's a really short stage, so it's going to be hard from the start. Not a day to miss the autobus.

Isn't it a little too hard for Sagan maybe? I don't know, I think we'll see the same group of riders as today to battle it out. Too bad it's this short. I would like to see a longer stage, but nevertheless the finale is pretty tricky. Thunderstorms and rain is forecasted so it will be even more difficult. Thomas and Fuglsang to attack again.

The final could be interesting. It's short, so punchy riders could do well. Also, I think Dumoulin will do well here.

Kwiatkowski to win. He won't get dropped on those climbs.

At first look I thought Degenkolb v Matthews battle but not sure teams will be able to control it to keep them in contention.

Kwiatkowski "shouldn't" have been dropped yesterday. I'd like to see him up there...will be interesting to see of he can turn himself around.

Sagan ofcourse. Today won't be hard enough to drop him. Mind you, he was close to rejoining the leading group yesterday, so imagine what he can do when the climb is easier.
today is harder than yesterday :confused:

No it isn't. Yesterday was 2x 3.9km @ 8.9%. Today is 5.2km @ 6.8% followed by a technical descent and then 3.3 @ 7.1% with 5km to the line.

Yes but yesterday there was around 10-15km of flat between the climbs and then flat also to the line. Today you have a longer climb, then a descent, then a climb again with no flat in between and after the summit there's a false flat till the finish. So if you are dropped on the first climb there's very little chance to recover.
