Stage 11 of the 2017 Tour de France is the second day back for the riders after a well-earned rest day on Monday.
The 203.5km stage from Eymet to Pau features only one climb and it is almost inevitable that the day will end with a sprint finish.
With several of the race’s top sprinters now out of the race – Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Arnaud Démare (FDJ) – there are less riders to share the spoils. But can anyone stop the in-form Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step Floors) from taking his fifth stage win of the race?
There’s little to suggest that there will be any changes in the overall classification on a day such as this – although given the previous week’s crashes and mishaps, anything could happen.
