Time to Regroup – after the savagery of yesterday’s stage, today is very likely to be a neutral stage from the GC boys’ point of view.
There are big hills in it, but they are very early in the stage.
Hence those who played big roles late in the climb yesterday will likely be riding small, tucked into the bunch conserving energy.
One can only assume that everyone’s favourite Slovakian, Peter Sagan, will get himself into the break and win the stage.
The mountains may be just a little too steep for someone like Matty Goss to attempt, although I have no doubt he’ll try!
For mine, it’ll be Sagan from Hoogerland from Chavanel. A quieter stage though. Time to Regroup.
