Arrival place Villars-les-Dombes is new in the Tour de France, but the Critérium du Dauphiné visited twice in recent years. Tony Martin won an individual time trial in 2013, while Nacer Bouhanni sprinted to victory in 2015.
With only three 4nd category climbs the profile of the stage Montélimar-Villars les Dombes has written ‘sprinters’ all over it. Yet, we are in the second week of racing and it remains to be seen how the fast men digested the Pyrenees and Mont Ventoux on the day before yesterday. If they are too exhausted, or if one sprinter was by far the best in week 1, we can expect them to strike a truce along with the GC men. This will delight a troupe of happy ‘baroudeurs’ who can then battle for day victory in the 2016 Tour de France.
Complicating factor might be they face a head wind at 4 Beaufort during the most of the day.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
