The mountains start tomorrow and Evans and Nibali will surely have to start attacking here if they are going to have any chance, assuming that Wiggins doesn't get sick or crash, of winning this Tour. With a 53.5K time trial across the Beauce from Bonneval to Chartres for the penultimate stage, they will want to have a cushion of at least two minutes on Wiggins by then. For Evans that means gaining four minutes and more for Nibali.
The first week of the race was marred by multiple crashes that saw a number of riders being badly injured. I hope we will see many fewer from now on and that the injured are soon back to racing fitness.
