The stage of the day: option to sprint on the eve of the Pyrenees

There is territory for ambushes and escapes, but the arrival of the Pyrenees on Saturday and the lack of opportunities for sprinters can lead to the mass arrival.


The journey between Millau and Lavaur, 168 kilometers with two heights of the third category and one of the fourth category, once again offers a territory suitable for ambushes and trying adventures from the escape. However, the presence of the Pyrenees just around the corner and the lack of movement so far on the Tour leads us to think that there may not be an unnecessary expenditure of energy. This Saturday, Menté, Balès and Peyresourde will be promoted, and on Sunday, Hourcère and Marie Blanque. Two atypical Pyrenean stages, without high arrivals and with descending goals.

Like the day of Privas, the downhill design favors the aspirations of the peloton in a pursuit of the escape. Sprinters will also not have many more opportunities for mass arrival from now on, aside from the Ile de Ré and the Champs-Elysées. In the fight for the green jersey, Peter Sagan and Sam Bennett are tied at 83 points, with Alexander Kristoff at three. "The fight between the three is exciting," acknowledges Sagan, who is seeking his eighth title in this classification. This Friday they could add more with the sprint.
