After a long day riding the punchy climbs of the Ardennes on stage three of the Tour de France, many riders would be looking to take it easy on today’s stage. Riding from Mondorf-les-Bains, the peloton take on 207.5km that included a intermediate sprint and a single categorised climb between them and Vittel.
The long transition stage would be one for sprinters being relatively flat and housing a small incline to the finish line. Peter Sagan, Greg Van Avermaet and Michael Matthews will all be savouring the chance to potentially add a stage win to their palmares before the peloton heads into the first mountain stage of the tour.
