A fairly unspectacular transition stage with only a few fourth category climbs along the way. A long break will probably go… but with no climbs in the last 50km the sprinters teams will drag it all together for a bunch gallop.

STAGE FACTS

? Nîmes has hosted the Tour 15 times. The first was in 1905 and the last was in 2004 when Aitor Gonzalez won.

? This is one of 10 flat road stages in this years Tour, but that?s still one less than in the previous two years.
