Stage 10 Prediction

The Tour de France is at rest today.  Tomorrow's action picks up with a flat Stage 10, which begins in the western French commune of Saint-Gildad-des-Bois and then heads due north for 197 km (122 mi) to the city of Saint-Malo on the English Channel.  There is one category-4 climb nearly three quarters of the way in, but it's a short climb and certainly nothing like what riders experienced in the Pyrenees.  Below is our prediction.
  • Stage 10:  4h 34' 42" (prediction)
Six more stages greet cyclists before the next rest day.  Will cyclists use today's rest to gear up for tomorrow?  Or will they hold back a little for the next day's individual time trial?  We shall see!
