Le Touquet-Paris-Plage to Lille Métropole
Tuesday, July 8th / 163.5 km / TDF Header Hill Stage

With the English adventure in the rearview mirror, the Tour reaches French soil for a stage that looks perfect for a long breakaway. Or will the sprinters rule once more? With cobblestones awaiting the peloton a day later, we’ll lean toward the sprinters on this day.

Our pick: Powerhouse Andre Greipel takes a two-man showdown with fellow German Marcel Kittel.
