It's not completely flat today. There may be no real climbs, but it's constantly on and off. I am expecting a group to break away, and if Quick Step have someone in that group, they will stay out of reach. Tomorrow is a resting day, and many are looking forward to it. Chasing a leading group is possible though, because the riders can recuperate tomorrow, but I wouldn't be surprised if the leading group will fight for the stage win.
Riders to give it a try (the ones that finished behind yesterday and saved some energy):
- Rabo: Dekker, Kroon
- CSC: Piil, Arvesen (?)
- O'Grady, Pozzatto, Bertolini, Garcia Acosta, ...
Don't think there is value in any of the sprinters at the start of the stage.
