Le Tour Day 9: My thoughts

Let’s not dwell on my hopeless predictions of yesterday about stage 8 of the Tour de France. Dreadful, is too kind a word to use about them.

It could be said that the Tour de France starts today. Anyone who completes the stage, and is among the top half dozen riders at the end of the stage within seconds of one another, is a contender for winner of the Tour.

Take a look at this profile of the stage. One word comes to my mind, and it’s pain.

My prediction on the stage winner, for the little value it’s worth, is Chris Froome.
