Wow, what a day yesterday! Let's hope the drama remains cycling-related rather than bus-related today.
Medium mountain stage, promises to be a real visual treat if yesterday was anything to go by. Three Cat 3 climbs, and one Cat 2 climb.
Difficult stage, made easier by the fact that the top of the final climb is about 60km from the finish. This will bring Cavendish and the other normal sprinters back into contention, but Sagan is still the out and out favourite. Not difficult enough to make the GC riders interested, so the green jersey battle continues today.
Maybe a very, very outside chance of some hardman from a smaller team attacking on the Cote du Salario, 1km at 8.9%, 12km from the finish. If only Vini Fantini were still here, Santambrogio or Di Luca perhaps...
