Yeah contadors being dying for a bit of rain to throw up some trouble. Final CLimb is below doesnt look too hard to me, kicks up a little at end purito wont be gapped here, question is another day for the break, de gendt will likely try something again

The rest day can mess with the legs but doubt it affects any of the big 3. Bolo Del Mundo looks a better climb for contador to try something.

I'm rooting for contador to win at least one stage before madrid. He's been so closed so many times. I don't care if Purito got dropped or not, but at least he win the sprint *finger crossed*

I'd like to see him get a stage too. Preferably in a sprint where he doesn't have time to do his pistol salute because that's one thing about him I haven't missed.

This looks like a breakaway stage though.
