I've heard some teams are giving this one some preview rides. If somebody wants to attack on the climbs, today might be that one-blow monoclimb sort of day. It's a short day, at 108 km, so there could be plenty of attacking.

I guess all teams that participated in the Criterium de Dauphine have been previewing it, as it was stage 6 in that race on June 9th. Stage win by #astana Pello Bilbao and #sky Geraint Thomas leading in the GC favorites some 20 secs later. Fairly small gaps between the best GC riders, but plenty of losses further back (amongst riders already off the back GC-wise). The expected "one stage I try harder" ride by #bahrain Nibali never materialized.

It also seems some riders that didn't ride the Dauphine have been out for a Sunday ride with friends:
