Today’s stage looks nice and flat, one for the sprinters no question until you just about spot the tiny little flick upwards right at the end. It’s a proper sting in the tail on Stage 7 with a final sprint that’s 500m at an average of around 8%. That will probably rule out the likes of Charlotte Kool and make it tough for someone like Marianne Vos (although she could still manage it). We may see the stage win just drift to a puncheur/climber type – a 100% fit Liane Lippert for instance would be ideal for this finish.
