The Tour leaves Western France in stage 7, the longest of the 105th edition at 231 kilometers. With only eight riders per team in 2018, this stage could be one in which the breakaway is given the freedom to roam. In other words, there’s no guarantee this flat stage will end with a bunch sprint. If it’s windy on the Beauce plains, the peloton could even explode into several pieces. We’ve seen the Tour lost in less tricky terrain.
