Dreux to Amiens Métropole

Stage 8 / Saturday, July 14th

While the wind can be quite strong and variable here it is most likely another day for the sprinters before heading to the cobbles in Stage 9. The final 2 km to the finish has two sharp left hand turns, the last being just 600 meters from the finish line. Teams that can keep a couple of lead out riders with big acceleration power at the front will be in good position to take the sprint.
