TdF Stage 13 Preview

Looks like a straightforward sprinter's stage, except for a significant third category bump towards the finish that might upset some of the pure sprinters. However, having had so few opportunities lately, and with the Pyrenees beckoning, I imagine Cav & Co will just suck it up and do what it takes to have a field sprint at the finish. Understanding that someone like Gilbert or Sagan might try to get over the top of Mont Saint-Clair and time-trial to the finish ahead of the chasing pack, I have a feeling that Cavendish has this stage marked on his calendar.
