As we finish Stage 6 in Montpellier, the Tour sets off again from there with the Tour organisers having set up a 205 kilometre race from Montpellier to Albi. This

race consists of awkward hills and turns so it could be one to watch out for and as usual in the south of France, we can predict heavy winds.

What To Expect

With The Pyrenees within reaching distance, all the teams will want to gain valuable time over the two favourites to win the stages in the Pyrenees, Chris Froome and Alberto Contador. With humps and bumps in the roads and rocky countryside, crashes are highly probable in this race. A stage that is no comparison to the Pyrenees should be a platform for those inexperienced riders to make one last break-away to gain extra time and on this sort of race, they will be easily out of sight. Still more points are up for grabs for the King Of The Mountain jersey, with one category 4, two category 3 and one category 2 climbs, this will make things difficult for the sprinters and most likely will be left behind early on. Near the end at the Avenue Albert Thomas will be almost a perfect ending for a sprinter, if they can make it over the climbs.

Predictions

As the climbs will most likely take out weak climbers and strong sprinters like Mark Cavendish and Marcel Kittel, I think that someone like Edvald Boasson Hagen could win this stage with a strong Sky team to back him up and set up a win for him at the end, or yet again Peter Sagan who can withstand climbs to a certain extent. BMC’s Cadel Evans and Van Garderen should be ones to watch out for. I think that Hagen will win this stage finishing just ahead of Peter Sagan.
