Not gonna even ask if there's broadcasting, looks like a very dull race and can't be bothered watching this. What's the point in having a 80km flat stage as the 3rd stage?

Why do you think this is a very dull race? :confused:
The reason for the 80km stage is because there is a TTT on the same day.

I don't agree that it will be dull race. Last 2 stages promises to ber very interesting. Especially the stage 4 with 1st gat finish.

Not sure about the broadcasting. I remember France3 showed the final stage live in last year. They'll probably just show highlights of the stages later in the day.

I wonder whom out of Cataldo or Pauwels will be stronger?

Cataldo on paper is of course but Serge has had good form this year/ has a chance to win.

Majka and the rest shall also make this exciting hopefully.

I doubt the final GC will be decided between Cataldo or Pauwels. I expect others to pass them.
 
More than seven minutes advantage for this group, that will surely stay away:

Yoann Bagot (Cofidis), Andrew Talansky (Garmin-Sharp), Bert-Jan Lindeman (Vacansoleil-DCM), Cédric Pineau (FDJ-BigMat), Julien Bérard et Guillaume Bonnafond (AG2R-La Mondiale), Dario Cataldo, Serge Pauwels et Nikolas Maes (Omega Pharma-Quick Step), Daniel Navarro et Mads Christensen (Team SaxoBank-Tinkoff Bank), Sergio Pardilla (Movistar), Eric Berthou et Gaël Malacarne (Bretagne-Schuller), Matthias Brandle (Team NetAPP), Pierre-Luc Périchon (La Pomme Marseille), Daan Oliver et Jasper Bovenhuis (Rabobank CT), Dimitri Le Boulch (BigMat-Auber 93), Jérôme Coppel (Saur-Sojasun), Perrig Quémeneur (Team Europcar), Alexey Lutsenko (Astana CT), Juan Ernesto Chamorro (Equipe de Colombie Espoirs).

How the hell did they let 2nd and 3rd in GC to get into breakaway? Also the likes of Pinot, Coppel, Talansky.. And the cap is huge 65 km before the finish: 15 mins.

Because most of the teams are in the break? And the teams that aren't, don't have the power to do anything about a group like that.

E: Just checked, only Leopard Trek CT don't have a rider in the breakaway.

Pffff and only a few hours ago I said that Pauwels and Cataldo won't be able to win l'Ain and then they let them ride away.
I hope Pardilla, Talansky Coppel or Olivier will beat them anyways :D
