Megève - Courchevel 131.5 km

Final day and all to fight for. Eight seconds separate Contador and Froome at the top. Time bonuses are 10, 6 & 4 seconds on the line so it seems likely that Sky will try and keep the stagewin in play as the final climb isn't too hard (5.9 km at 6.2%) and big gaps seem unlikely.

Favorite Flipper of the Day: Chris Froome

A stagewin but with Contador on his wheel to ensure the overall win. There's your prediction.
