However the downhill finish into Andorra la Vella could give a chance for the better descenders to force a gap, although this is unlikely to be significant so early in the race.

Yves Lampaert, who took the leader’s red jersey on the second day after a late attack on the road into Gruisson, will hope to defend his slender lead, but may have a tough time in the mountains
