A taste of what is to come

Four categorised climbs and a mountaintop finish will make the first stage on the road a real leg burner. General Classification contenders will likely be saving their legs for the final few days in Les Alpes and so a break may well succeed. On paper the stage looks to suit a Pierrick Fedrigo or a Thomas Voeckler who both have been looking good in the French National Cup on profiles similar to this one.
