    The peloton enter the Alps today with a medium mountain stage. The uphill finish is uncategorised, but it comes after two Cat. 1 climbs. It's unlikely we'll see any major GC action, unless Pog goes on the attack or Jumbo-Visma/Ineos try some sort of an ambush.

    It looks like an ideal day for the breakaway, in particular for anyone who fancies their chances of taking the polkadot jersey off the back of Magnus Cort (I'm looking at you Pierre Rolland).

    I'm hoping indeed that we get a large breakaway, because so far in the race they have been very small, apart from the stage to La Super Planche des Belles Filles.
