So today's route is an odd one: 157km with some climbing (in the cat-3 range) at 125km... not one to shake out the climbers by any means. But it could be an unhappy day for the sprinters and their teams. Also, I'm very curious about that almost invisible uptick at the end on the stage profile... I'm thinking the last km or two won't be flat.
This could be a good day for the classics men. Nick Nuyens looked strong Sunday... and he needs a win, right?
