One last appetizer before tomorrow's main course (which will still be overshadowed by the dessert, but whatever). The final ramp averages 6%, which I think of as my own tipping point... meaning the course itself will not trouble anyone too much. But it's a climb, it goes on for some 20km, so if someone is feeling especially frisky, this may yet wind up being an interesting or even decisive stage. My guess is that tomorrow is more challenging, so if a climber wants to put time into Cancellara before Sunday, they may prefer to wait 24 hours. OTOH, there's the element of surprise. Anyway, it's a bike race, they're bike racers. They'll race their bikes. Enjoy!
