With a good handful of time lost in Stage 7, it is high time Bradley showed some dominance. This stage is somewhat similar to Stage 19 of last year's TDF, where Brad put over 3 minutes into Nibali, and over 5 minutes into Basso.
The start of the course is relentlessly twisting, where Nibali may be hoping his bike handling skills will give him an advantage over Wiggo. However, after the intermediate time check, it's essentially a drag race to the finish. It ends with a 3 km climb, so going out too fast will be terminal.
