The Critérium du Dauphiné has seldom offered such a big suspense for his conclusive stage as the world's two best riders for stage races are separated by only eight seconds prior to the uphill finish scheduled at Courchevel around 5pm on Sunday. It's the duel of the giants between Alberto Contador and Chris Froome with the unknown of the consequences of the crash that has harmed the leader of Team Sky on Friday. The col des Saisies and the côte de Montagny, both classified in first category, will precede the ascent to Courchevel-Le Praz, which is a six-kilometre long climb at 6.2%. 10, 6 and 4 seconds bonus are awarded to the first three of the stage. Shall Tinkoff-Saxo and Team Sky not let a breakaway go for the stage victory, it'll be a question of every second to count at the very end of the 1187 kilometres of the 66th Critérium du Dauphiné.
