    The format is a little confusing on that article. The paragraph you're talking about is meant for Stage 13. The one for Stage 12 mentions "the day's three massive climbs."

    If they KNOW for sure Contador's knee is bothering him, they will attack like crazy. If they suspect Contador's knee is fine, I think they hold back and as versus calls "heads of state" will cross close together. As they say, you can't win the Tour in a day but you can certainly lose it in a day.

    I do wonder how much scouting and spying goes on among teams.

    This is correct. I wanted it the other way around but somewhere along the line after I wrote it, it got changed. Stage 13 only has one major climb.

    Actually the wording looks like it was changed in a paragraph and thats off now too. The forecast hasn't changed, so you can just check out the stage forecasts under the bold. I wish I had seen your guys posts an hour ago, I just got done with work.

    13 is meh for a mountain stage. Long decent after the HC climb and space between the two climbs. 14 is a brutish stage which will be a tough challenge.

    The one that looks to be the meat gridner is stage 18.
