Last stage. 

Probably all the competitions are over. Valvertde's gonna win the General classification. Fedrigo's got the spotty jersey prize and Evans' got the points jersey in hand. All that's left is this transitional stage which mainly exists to insult the sprinters one more time as it has the gnarly cat 1 Montée de Saint-Bernard-de-Touvet that crests about 22 km from the finish line. Average gradient: 9%. L'ouch. Still I don't see this upsetting the established order; it just gets rid of those pesky sprinters so they don't contest the stage win.

Video:  CTV, Eurosport and what have you  should start at 15:15 CEST, 9:15 am Eastern. Note CTV is scheduled to start Suisse Tour coverage an hour and 10 minutes later. There might be overlap between the two if the Dauphine stage takes a little longer than expected. There are/will be a variety of links at Steephill.TV or Cycling fans.
