Title: Stage 5: Lorient > Quimper

Prudhomme compares this to an Ardennes classic. I suppose that is apt enough. Starts out on the coastline, but not long enough to predict any benefit or risk from wind and echelons. The first half (200 km day) is flat enough we'll probably see a BOTD. It could be a day for a classics strong man to be up front and pick up enough time to stay in yellow for a day or two, but I think a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome today.
