My bet; Porte is gonna fail. Talansky vs van Garderen for the GC, Westra, Kloden and Kiserlovski outsiders

Hm... I 'll try to be in the wake of half forum and suppose that Quintana will win. :)
 
Pre De Lure hills details:

Cat. 2: Col de Mûrs (10,3 km @4,3%)
Cat. 2: Côte d'Oppedette (7,1 km @4,0%)
Cat. 3: Côte de Saint-Martin-les-Eaux (2,7 km @3,7%)
Cat. 3: Col de la Mort d'Imbert (4,5 km @4,4%)
Cat. 3: Côte des Mourres (2,9 km @4,9%)

Looks difficult for long range attacks. In any case Garmin will be busy on the first part.

It is actually perfect for long range attacks as long as guys like voeckler don't invite themselves like today.... When best placed guy will be at 5+ min, i don't think that GRS will work themselves to the ground to get the break back

gonna go with my man Quitana-BUT- don't forget Scarponi........................................................just saying
He looked pretty good today, and I wasn't expecting him to do anything.
Quintana needs to go all out. I'm not sure Gesink has the legs to follow.

ah right, let me clarify. A long range attack by somebody close in the GC. A break will very likely go on the first hill. Only question will be the strength.

Bardet is the man to beat tomorrow.
Bardet isn't that good of a climber, he's a better hilly rider imo. Tomorrow Quintana will get his vengeance if he's not affected by his crash, with let's say Scarponi 2nd, and Talansky 3rd.

Although in reality it's just a wild guess, anyone with climbing legs can win the stage.
