    Well that means it would be a 4 if you were going the other way
    When in doubt, style it out.

    and no rating on the large hump at 120 km. Odd.

    That Cat4 might be on the next one after the descent.
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    They are going to do that by suddenly announcing on Saturday morning that the time trial has been shortened to 10 km.

    The profile has some depth to it. Take away the part that's blocking the line that is coming from the Cat number and it'll lead to the top of the climb.
    Ten tenths.

    When they did the stage preview at the end of the broadcast today, I noted the Cat 4 climb was at km 42. That still doesn't explain why that climb that looks pretty big at km 120 isn't rated. Maybe the mystery will be solved tomorrow morning.

    42km makes sense. That climb looks at least a cat 4 at 120km, it must be a shallow grade for it not to be categorized.

    None of the other profiles have the Cat number offset like that. I think it must just be an error.

    Wow, Sylvan was bawling afterwards. I'm sure I'd be pretty emotional if I won a tour stage, but...damn son! It makes me feel better watching people like that win stages.

    Boy...that Gerald Ciolek has a wild head-bob going during his sprints. Maybe he'll get another chance on Sunday.

    That is likely the closest QS gets to a stage win in the Tour this year.

    Feillu, Wegmann and Flecha finished about 9 minutes off the cutoff time.
