rain at the end?100% chance of rain, east wind 15-30kph. Since they are making a bee-line SE for the entire stage, seems like echelons could be a possibility, although I don't know know how open (I.e. Exposed to wind)the terrain is?
It still looks like a lot of rain all the day. That won't be fun for the riders and it will make the last hilly part a lot of harder.
Might be the case. But at least it shouldn't be too cold.As long as it doesn't fizzle out like stage 12 last year when everyone was just too miserable to want to race by the end
Might be the case. But at least it shouldn't be too cold.
Today we will resolve some doubts about his.I'm not sure Evenepoel has the form to follow the competitors on the final climb. Given that he was already riding a big gear on the slopes yesterday. And that is not the way to conserve strength, unless you have no other option.
He is the main favourite today, But eernal should be with him, and I hope Landa as well.Its very hard to see beyond Yates. If it was the 3rd week it would be different, but he should be too strong for everyone today.
Soler is a good shout as he is one of the best riders that may still be allowed some room to move by the big GC teams who don’t fully respect his ability to go 3 weeks without a bad day.If the weather turns out as bad as expected, the GC contenders may survive today but could well fall foul in the coming days with illness, hope not. Soler to win.
Climb looks like Civiglio. I know he is not going for GC, but Mollema must be tempted.rain at the end?
The climb is hard. It could be an important stage.
