These are the stages you probably shouldn’t miss:This comes with a caveat, because last year’s race had two decisive stages vastly different from one another:Stage 10, when Froome chugged his way up to La Pierre-St. Martin and picked off all of his rivals to give himself the last bit of cushion he’d need to win his second yellow jersey, and:Stage 2, when what should have been an innocuous flat stage in the Netherlands was ravaged by crosswinds that split the peloton and gave contenders like Quintana and Nibali time deficits that they couldn’t make up.
This makes watching the Tour de NBA Live Mobile Coins France occasionally infuriating. The stages that are supposed to be all-decisive and epic — the climbs up Mont Ventoux, Alpe d’Huez, Col de Tourmalet — are often stalemates. Stages that are supposed to be inconsequential — say, a stage meant to move riders south along some scenic coastline — can change the face of the Tour. You’d have to watch every single minute of the Tour to ensure that you don’t miss anything. While this is recommended, you have time constraints.
These are the stages that are the safest bets to be really fun. Which is to say, not a safe bet at all, and this is mostly just fan fiction.(For a more complete look at every stage, check out Podium Cafe’s viewing guide.It’s really good. Also check out their mountains preview.It’s also really good. Actually just keep Podium Cafe open in a tab for the next three weeks;they’re smart and fun and all-around great.
Stage and mountain profiles courtesythe Tour's official site.)Stage 2, July 3 — Saint-L? to Cherbourg-en-CotentinThis is the first potentially significant stage of the Tour, but more importantly it’ll be a fun finish with a pretty sizable wall to climb after a bumpy first 180 kilometers through Normandy. Part of the climb hits 14 percent gradient. That’s steep! And the profile of the entire stage should ensure that there will be a lot of contenders for the stage win comprising a lot of different types of riders.
Stage 8, July 9 — Pau to Bagnères-de-LuchonThe Tour de France will be firmly in the Pyrenees and taking on the Col du Tourmalet, one of several iconic climbs that the Tour likes to visit often. I’d venture to call it the first BIG stage of the 2016 Tour, where a decisive ride could put someone in firm control of the yellow jersey. It’ll be a relentless day, just look: For the last 120 kilometers, this stage doesn’t let up.
