No idea what to expect for this one. All I know is that there are lots of riders and teams that have come for stage wins, allegedly, plus some good riders already by the wayside now only hunting for stage wins as well. 

Given the fact they can't win stage wins on summit finishes and can't win in the sprints...what's left?...

i may park this stage in the too hard to call column and just load up for stage 9.
