Back in the day they used to do it a lot more often w/ a short tt stage/prologue, followed by a short road stage or the other way around. I guess it gives the race organizers a chance to have multiple gc leaders on a single day. I think they did it in the Giro a couple of years ago & I seem to remember the last time they did this in the Tour was 1990, the last year Lemond won.uzziefly said:Stage 1b??? B???
