Once again, I am sharing the event's official images with the intent to generate interest and discussion and with no interest of obtaining personal gain.

I might not call it hate but I'm pretty sure they're fond of neither you nor sprinters.

Sprint stages in the middle of a Grand Tour are - more often than not - ratings losers. I like the mix here. Limited TTs (the ultimate ratings losers), A few stages for Sprinters and Breakaways, and the rest for climbers and the GC.
