Bourg-en-Bresse to Saint-Étienne
Thursday, July 17th / 185.5 km / TDF Header Hill Stage

This classic transition stage takes the race to the edge of the big mountains. Expect a tug-of-war between breakaway specialists and the sprinters. The fast men were denied the day before. But today we expect them to get to the finish in time to fight for the spoils.

Our pick:Cannondale’s Peter Sagan has to win a stage at some point. This will be his day.
