Maubourguet Pays du Val d'Adour - Bergerac 208.5 km
Uncomplicated day before the timetrial. Desperate attackers vs. possibly hungry sprint teams. Outcome uncertain.
Cycling Cyrano of the Day: John Degenkolb
Kittel too tired, Greipel too slow, Kristoff too poorly assisted, Sagan too jinxed, Renshaw too leadout-y, Coquard too poorly positioned, van Avermaet too much energy wasted in the Pyrénées.
And Demare, is he still in a camper van somewhere? That pretty much just leaves Degenkolb, no?
