After today, there are probably just two stages left for the sprinters, and both come the either side of hellish days in the mountains.
Expect HTC-Highroad, Garmin-Cervélo, Lampre-ISD and possibly even Team Sky to keep the race under control throughout, particularly both the day’s climbs are negotiated 40km outside of Lavaur.
