Today see's you tackle the Mûr de Bretagne twice with the finish at the top of the climb on the second lap. The race starts with some hard attacks, you need to make the effort just to stay on the wheels in bunch as the early break goes clear. The pace ramps up over the stage until you hit the Mur for the first time. On the first ascension, the pace is hard at the bottom in it's steepest section. This is enough for you to make the lead group. On the final climb to finish the pace is again hard at the bottom but backs off in the middle as everyone waits for the move to happen. You attack hard in last 400m to line hitting a big effort for 45sec. Hard day out.
