Alp - Vallter 2000 (Setcases) 166.4 km

This years big mountain-top finish. A 12km climb at an average of 7,8%* is definitely going to leave a mark. Forget the big-group-grinding we saw yesterday, this is going to be selective.

* Counting from Setcases, the full climb is actually 19 km avg 6% from Campodron

Messi-on-a-bike of the Day: Chris Froome

Because everyone was whining how he was rusty on yesterdays climb I'm going to say he will look better now that he's on a climb that actually suits him. This despite the fact that I've been assuming that this was J-Rod's race to lose all along.
