Didn't realise you were a fan too. I got into it about ten years ago, having watched the first stage of the Tour de Catalunya. Loved it ever since. Paris - Rouaix is one of my faves...across the cobbles. Sorts the men from the junkies....

TODAY's STAGE:

 

Chablis to Autun - 182.5km.

 

KEY MOMENTS:

 

36km - Intermediate Sprint 1 - Avallon

 

39.5km - Côte des Grandes-Châtelaines - Cat 4 (1.5 km @ avg 6.7 %)

 

52.5km - Côte de Domecy-sur-Cure - Cat 4 (1.3 km @ avg 6.2 %)

 

58.5km - Côte de Champignolles-le-Bas - Cat 3 (2.0 km @ avg 6.5 %)

 

86.5km - Côte de Coulon - Cat 4 (1.0 km @ avg 6.2 %)

 

94.5km - Intermediate Sprint 2 - Montreuillon

 

98.5km - Côte de Saint-Maurice - Cat 3 (3.0km @ avg 5.2 %)

 

119.0km - Côte de Château-Chinon - Cat 4 (2.5 km @ avg 3.8 %)

 

135.5km - Haut-Folin - Cat 2 (12.9km @ avg 3.7 %)

 

145km - Intermediate Sprint 3 - Bibracte-Mont-Beuvray

 

174.0km - Côte de la Croix de la Libération - Cat 3 (3.4 km @ avg 5.4 %)

 

THE TIPPING POINT:

 

The sheer number of climbs throughout the stage throws it open to some of the all-rounders in the peloton. The sprinters' teams will have their work cut out if they are to reel in the breakaways over this hilly course. David Millar would be in with a shout, though with the Scot lying just 41 seconds behind Fabian Cancellara, the CSCs will be watching him like a hawk. Look out for Gerolsteiner's Stefan Schumacher, and Liquigas' Filippo Pozzato, while Erik Zabel and Oscar Freire seem the sprinters best-equipped to deal with the profile of the course.

162km - Sylvain Chavanel is adamanant he will escape! He attacks again, and is followed this time by FdJ's Philippe Gilbert and Credit Agricole's William Bonnet. Giampaolo Cheula of Barloworld tried to go with them but couldn't match their tempo. The trio have now opened up a gap of 30 seconds on the field.
