This is the stage where the wind could play a role, but nothing spectacular forecasted.

the return of the flat boring stages
Six of next seven stages are going to be crap. It makes no sense to avoid so many opportunities for GC relevant stages in the second week.

Peyragudes, Foix, Rodez, Le Puy en velay *** stages?

You're just a hater

2 90 degree corners in the last km should make it a fun sprint
Huh. That might liven up things. If Earl Anthony had made it up the mountains we might've seen a 300.*





*I am just doling out an obvious joke for an obvious stage. I don't share Jos van Emden's feelings. And I don't wish to see any crashes. I really hate these bends past the kite and if anything happens most of the blame should probably be shouldered by ASO.

Quite strange place to finish in charming city of Bergerac. With so many beautiful streets to make the finish, this looks like a remote area. Well more than 30 years I've been to the city, so don't remember clearly, but is a special place to draw attention to (besides TdF)? Or just best place for finding room?

Last corner indicates some kinda closed for public.

Edit: still some 500-550m to finish line from last corner which seems to be above 90 degrees, more like 110-120 degrees corner. Fine combination between technique and sprint train tactics. Could be exiting.

This.
You don't want a bunch sprint in the narrow, winding streets of the old city center. Although it would certainly provide a spectacle of some kind.
