Stage 11Besançon / Oyonnax

Start 12h50 (Local time)

A very tight race

Thierry Gouvenou's view05.05.2014Stage 11- Besançon / Oyonnax

The stage after the first rest day. Does this herald the start of a new race? Perhaps... It depends on how things go. I expect it to be a very tight race, with the big favourites within three minutes of each other. Not enough to think the race is done and dusted, but still a sizeable margin in the general classification. This is why we avoided widening the gaps with a time trial, for example, and we sought instead to create undulating stages to promote attacks. This stage could be one for the likes of Peter Sagan.
