222 kms, a couple of climbs (one Cat3, one Cat2) and a very very fast downhill conclusion to the stage. Get a few riders over the final climb ahead of the pack and they might have a shot at staying away.
Will Sky try to defend the Maglia Rosa? I'd say yes, but with five riders at the top of the GC that may not mean leaving it with Puccio. Keep Wiggins in the leading group and he may well be in pink this afternoon.
