Besancon to Oyonnax
Wednesday, July 16th / 187.5 km / Flat Flat Stage

Following the race’s first rest day, this rolling affair from Besançon to Oyonnax looks ideal for a breakaway. There are four small climbs in the final 50km, plus a testing descent on the run into the finish. But the lack of an early time trial — and the gaps it would have created — means the GC riders cant sit back.

Our pick: Peter Sagan is one of the sport’s best descenders. Those skills will pay off on this day.
