An uphill sprint finish?

With the mountains behind them and a time trial to follow, all the yellow jersey contenders will be looking for some respite on this theoretical sprinters’ stage. In any case, everyone will be tired, which means that those who have been riding in the gruppetto for a few stages will have a little more energy to make a long-distance breakaway stick.

That will likely be the case, unless some of the sprinters’ teams decide that shooting for a stage win is essential. In that case, the uphill finish on a 5-percent grade will suit Caleb Ewan and Mads Pedersen—and perhaps the Dane will be inspired by the finish at Cahors being close to the Château de Caïx, which belongs to the Danish royal family.
