Slovenian Interlude

After their battles on the ultra-steep slopes of the previous afternoon, all the riders will be happy to go down to the Adriatic coast to start the short stage 15. Only 146 kilometers long, the stage heads inland to make two-and-a-bit laps of a hilly 32-kilometer circuit straddling the Italy-Slovenia border before heading into the city of Gorizia (population 35,000), with a final little climb 2.9 kilometers from the line. A breakaway group is sure to contest the stage win, and expect to see a rider who has a good kick to be prominent in the finale—maybe a rider like Team DSM’s Nicolas Roche (Stephen’s son).
