Analysis by Joe Lindsey, blogger and Colorado Resident
There are still five KOMs on today’s stage, but it’s billed as one of the few sprint finishes in the race. Expect an early break of KOM contenders who are far enough down in the overall standings after the TT that the pack will let them go. With the last summit at 38.8 miles in and a long, downhill coast to Steamboat via the flatter back way that avoids Rabbit Ears Pass, this one’s all coming back together. Altitude geeks take note: We still never dip below about 6,700 feet.
Note: Stage route, exact start/finish, and sprints/climbs have been approximated from information provided by Actual stage may vary slightly.
