There won’t be a big group tackling the finale of the two-kilometer climb of the Mûr de Bretagne, as has been the case in previous years. That’s because this year the riders will tackle the hill at Mûr de Bretagne on two occasions in less than 20 kilometers. That is likely to result in a particularly testing end to the stage while producing splits. Many riders will lose precious seconds here. It’s a finish for the strongest riders, perhaps even for yellow jersey contenders. In 2011, Cadel Evans won the stage on his way to overall victory. In 2015, Alexis Vuillermoz won, and behind him, Froome showed that he was the boss.
Check back after the race.
