Tour de France 2015 Stage 7 preview: Livarot - Fougeres, 190.5 km

This, all being well, should be the quietest stage of the entire Tour.

The riders will have a look at the road book, notice that for once there are no traps – minimal chance of crosswinds, no cobbles, no hills (save a fourth-cat pimple just after the start), no nasty kick up at the finish – and breathe a sigh of relief, nostalgically recalling times when they could rider themselves into form in the opening week.
