Barloworld team manger Claudio Corti wasn't sure what to expect in today's finale. "We will have to see if there will be a sprint first," he told Cyclingnews'
Gregor Brown. "The race has been difficult up until today. True, there are a lot of riders who recovered.
"Normally there is a sprint," he continued, thinking of his sprinter, Robert Hunter. "You need the power and experience for the last day - I hope that Hunter can win the stage. The team can't really do much because they don't have the experience to stay in the front positions leading into a sprint. They will try a little bit, but Hunter will be on his own to sprint - like all the Tour."
As a reminder, Hunter will sprint on a Bianchi 928 Carbon T-Cube
