Stage 11 looks to be flatter than stage 10.


Probably also looking to see Kittel go for a record 5th stage win as well.

I seem to always miss out on those 44.5km/h average club rides :(

There might be some crosswind tomorrow that could shake things up a bit if not everyone is paying attention.

LOL, if there is a split due to crosswinds we can be assured that Quintana will loose time.

If we can actually get real cross winds and a real cross winds battle it might be worth watching. Otherwise I'll just catch the last 3K somewhere.
well, how would you know without watching? once it's announced somewhere and one gets online the split has been made and it's all settled.

When you say record 5th stage win, that is for a German in one Tour.

The record for most stage wins in one Tour de France is shared by 3 men. The record is 8 (yes eight!). According to Wiki:

Charles Pélissier (FRA) (1930, in addition to seven 2nd places)
Eddy Merckx (BEL) (Twice: 1970, 1974)
Freddy Maertens (BEL) (1976, in addition to four 2nd and two 3rd places)

That is correct.


Cool stats; thanks for sharing :thumbsup: !

Unfortunately it looks like Cataldo is out. Looked like a broken scaphoid. I've had that years ago and it still creaks in cold weather

It always amazes me;


This is a super flat stage yet there are many crashes still.

Damn peloton. Bodnar so earned winning that one. Too bad he got caught in sight of the line.
