 Looks like we will get a 60km battle to get into the break. Orica, Astana and Trek will be trying to join the usual suspects, plus teams now desperate for a win, in going up the road.
After that, and 30-40 kms of calm, Contador will probably launch on the opening second cat, seventy kms from the finish.
Astana could send Aru up the road, as he is far enough back on the GC, but my guess is that he won't play ball.
So, maybe Lopez will join Berto again.
Orica will go all out for the the stage.
Keldeman will probably ride in a similar fashion to Uran at the Tour.
Zakarin will look to attack Wilco. So, probably late, if he survives the crippling gradients.
Perhaps the biggest question of all is: how much does Nibali fancy the downhill between the climbs?
