What's going to happen today then?? Is a last 4km at an average 8% (I think thats what I read but might be wrong) going to be enough to cause any changes to GC? Will a break get away? Will a classics rider like Ballan be able to stay with the proper climbers, or are we looking no further than J-Rod, Contador, Froome and Valverde?? Is that really Gilbert riding for BMC this season or has it been Sohrabi all along wearing one of those Mission Impossible-style rubberised masks??
My hot tip today? Bakelants. But my hot tips rarely do anything.
Froome (in for Degenkolb, will reverse tomorrow)
Bakelants (in for Swift)
Astarloza (only had 2.5 left after my other transfers!)
Of those of you going for a high overall placing, how are you getting on? I'm just outside the top 200, no disasters yet but nothing special either...
