C. Prudhomme's comment

Unless a surprise occurs, a sprinter should claim the win in Chartres like Stuart O’Grady in 2004 even if on that day a breakaway group had managed to stay clear of the peloton. It was also on that occasion that Thomas Voeckler’s fairy tale started. Riders should however be extra cautious if the wind blows hard on the final 40 kilometres of the stage.
