TdF ’23 Stage 14 Dialogue – Spoliers!

Stage 14 is a 91-mile brutal mountain stage, with a merciful 11 mile downhil to the end.

Earlier than that, the primary half consists of 4 respectable climbs, with the sprinter factors on the high of the fourth – Jambaz.

The second half has 2 critical climbs: Col de Ramaz, 8 or 9 miles at 7%, then the corresponding downhill, then rightaway to Col de Joux Airplane, 7 miles at a brutal 8.5% to the highest, earlier than the downhill.

A non-threatening breakawy could also be allowed, to seize fame and factors earlier than the ultimate climb. We actually anticipate GC to verify one another closely.

GC challengers might start attempting to melt up any obvious leaders (pog) on a stage like this, making any obvious GC fav fritter away some matches.

This Stage 14 is adopted by one other mountain stage which is an actual decision-maker, then a relaxation day. So, we should always anticipate digs on the high ten and high 3.

Will Australia keep on high, or be despatched Down Underneath?
