Elia Viviani can already boast of having stage wins in the big three laps. He needed to raise his arms in the Tour and he got it by winning in the sprint at Alexander Kristoff and Caleb Ewan. The homework has already been done, and the pressure has already taken it away. It is difficult for the Italian to repeat victory. Their rivals in the massive arrivals are very fast and the competition is huge. The few opportunities that the sprinters will have force everyone to seek victory as soon as possible. Of the four stages played only two teams have won: Jumbo and Deceuninck. A fact that shows the difficulty of winning the Tour.

The arrival of the middle mountain opens a range of possibilities. From a massive arrival without the fast men of the squad, to a fight between escapees. Anything can happen, given the difficulty of controlling the race on the part of the teams of sprinters, in an area that is not very favorable for them. At 20 km from the finish a 3rd category port is crowned with 4.6 km at 6.1%. Predictably will give a lot of play. Not so much the descent, not ideal to launch down in search of creating differences, due to the presence of the plain in the final kilometers. Peter Sagan, Julian Alaphilippe or Alejandro Valverde are some of the favorites for victory. It will not be a stage for the strong men of the general. The favorites will be reserved for Thursday with the arrival of the high mountain.
