Stage 13 Overview, Picks and Comment

July 17, 2008

Stage 13 is sentimental for me because I spent a week in the finishing town of Nimes a few summers ago. I love the south of France. The countryside is so picturesque and the food is great. If you get a chance, you should go. Seriously.

The stage today (Friday) is fairly flat. Not like a billiards table as there are some little climbs, but not a mountain stage by any means.

It’s a 182KM journey from Narbonne into Provence that will likely see another sprint finish. If Cavendish has a say, he’ll win his fourth stage in Nimes.

My other picks are still Hushovd and Mc Ewen. They HAVE to win a stage soon.

That’s all for now. See you here tomorrow.
