Stage 6 – 2011 Tour de France

July 7, 2011

Alberto Contador isn’t in the front. Andy Schleck isn’t in the front. Thor Hushovd is there. And both Tyler Farrar and Mark Cavendish have won a stage in this year’s Tour. So, what’s going to happen today?

The stage is the longest in the 2011 Tour de France. It’s an eastward journey from Dinan to Lisieux over the course of 226KM.
Predictions have Philippe Gilbert as the winner in this stage if he can stay with the pack for the entire day. I disagree. I think this is the first time that Alberto Contador will push the other riders around. The podium today will likely be Contador, Schleck and Sammy Sanchez.
Only a few hours will tell. Be back shortly.
