Re: Smaller Race Results and Discussion 2019

The profiles for the rest of the race don't look very promising. Today in theory was the hardest finish, but everyone (pretty much) except Pelucchi made it.
Stage 6 has a finishing circuit in Oyem where a short climb could provide a springboard for an attack. Last year Nocentini won solo there. The Libreville circuit on stage 7 has also seen attacking racing in the past.

But it is slim pickings, that's true. It could well end up with seven mass sprints and the GC being decided by bonus seconds ... or there's a breakaway one day that gets to the finish several minutes ahead of the peloton when we least expect it. ;)
