Stage 13 will put a smile back on the faces of the sprinters, who haven’t had many opportunities up to this point in the race. That fact underlines how demanding this year’s route is; everyone’s legs will be starting to feel it. Fortunately, this stage is relatively short. Following all of the mountains, there’s no doubt a few brave souls will try to escape. Even in a peloton where teams have just eight riders, they’ll be hard-pressed to go all the way. There’s a very good chance this stage will end in a bunch sprint.
Check back after the race.
