Yeah, if they stay away and win, lol

No extra points for breakaways like there were in the classics

I dont know how it works with the mountains, because it says

Quote:

Stage KM: Points awarded for points accrued in the climber's classification from the day's stage. Does not include mountaintop stage finishes.

So does the mean because its a mountain finish the rest of the climb points dont count?

You might just be lucky today, i'm watching it in Italian because Eurosport have decided one of the most important (could be) stages this year wont get much coverage, just aswell names are the same in all languages

But it looks like the break may stay away, they are getting further and further away

Bakelandts to win if it stays away  4
