Trek-Segafredo head into the key stage at the Tour de la Provence with two cards to play in Bauke Mollema and Giulio Ciccone. The third day of racing is set to finish at the Chalet Reynard ski station on Mont Ventoux. 

The outcome of the stage will likely decide the overall standings in the four-day event with current leader Davide Ballerini (Deceuninck-Quick Step) expected to fade on the 9.7km climb, which averages 9.1 per cent.
