The stage of the day: a very broken end with the last 500 meters at 8%

The Tour will leave Belgium and enter France with a stage of 215 kilometers, very broken in its final part, with four levels.


The Tour will leave Belgium and will enter in France with a stage of 215 kilometers, very broken in its final part, with four levels: one fourth and three third. In addition, the last 500 meters of the goal of Epernay will bite up , at 8%. A good opportunity for the classics: Peter Sagan, Greg van Avermaet, Sonny Colbrelli, Michael Matthews, Julian Alaphilippe ... or the world champion, Alejandro Valverde.

Many in the squad mark this day as one of the keys of the first week. Like Enric Mas: "Maybe you will not win anything, nor take advantage of the rivals, but you can miss the Tour on such a nervous day and with such narrow roads in the final sector. 2 For us it will be a good chance to win with Alaphilippe and who knows if with me, I would like to get as high as possible before the mountain. "

For his part, Valverde was not ruled out for the victory: " Depending on how the stage evolves, we will already check what options there are to play. Sure, and why not, I'd love to win with the rainbow jersey on this Tour ".
