Tallard - Nȋmes 222 km
we leave the mountains briefly for a quick moment of respite. The day before the restday in Carcassone should offer a straightforward day for the sprinters.Unless we get crosswinds that is. Then it's back to hell for everyone. (It's a longshot though.)
Tallardega Knight of the day: John Degenkolb
Being creative with picks gets increasingly hard as a GT goes on (expect a few Nibali picks coming up). I'm going to peg Degenkolb as a guy coming out of the mountains in good shape.
