Stage 19: Bourg-en-Bresse > Champagnole

September 18th

The stage isn't overly tough, so not sure if it's possible to really drop the pure sprinters, but they'll have tired legs anyway, and won't like another day at full-gas.

The finish is tricky as well, with some Eneco-style twists at 1.5k to go:

    Full gas from the drop?

    Will Bora hope to take advantage of a weary peloton, or will other teams who are desperate for their last chance at a stage win fight to secure a breakaway all their own?

    I expect a mostly uneventful stage with a  few pockets of "almost" here and there.

    Bennett for the win (even if he doesn't "win" today).  ;)

    Bora's tactics didn't quite work out, but resulted in a win for #sunweb Sunweb again:
