Troyes - Bar-sur Aube 126.8 km
The first really crucial stage for the general classification. A hard hilly stage with around 15 km of spicy gravel in the finale. By all accounts this is the kind of nasty stuff we see in Paris-Tours so in all likelihood we’ll to see some get in trouble and maybe lose large chunks of time due to punctures or just from the race action.
