TdF Stage 11 preview

With one time trial and ten stages behind us, we're now past half-time in this year's Tour de France. Another ten stages remain, among them two more time trials at Stages 13 and 19, and then of course that casual Stage 20 into Paris.

But tomorrow, the remaining 171 riders have to master 182.5 km of Stage 11 between Marseille and Montpellier, with its one Cat-4 climb and its two sprints. So we have another flat stage ahead, which means it's sprinters' heaven again, and Rasmussen will likely remain in yellow.
