The longest remaining stage of this year's Tour de France sees the peleton navigate the 202.5km route from Rodez to Carcassonne.
The Stage is nominally described as flat but does contain two category three climbs on a rolling terrain.
Things level off for the finish however which means barring any surprises, the sprinters should take an opportunity to come to the fore.

"The fast guys will be there," said Adam Blythe on The Breakaway as he previewed the finish of the stage. "But it is a little bit uphill and the road before it, is a tough one.
"Positioning is key".
The likes of Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin–Fenix), Mads Pedersen (Trek–Segafredo) and Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) will all be looking to make an impact.
