Grenoble to Risoul
Saturday, July 19th / 177 km / Mountain Mountain Stage

Two legendary ascents, the Lautaret and the Izoard, assure a day that cant be missed. The summit finish on the slopes of the Risoul means the GC contenders will be on the clock. The last climb is 12.6km and averages a tough 6.9%.

Our pick: Hard to bet against Vincenzo Nibali after the show he’s put on thus far. But while we dont think the yellow jersey leader will lose any time to his rivals, says here he wont win this stage. Instead give the honors to Laurens Ten Dam (Belkin). The Dutchman is climbing well and is far enough back in the overall standings that he’ll be given just enough leash to slip away.
