#TDF Stage 5 Stop Before the land runs out

Cap Fréhel
On Saturday we started out in the Bay of Biscay, today we end up sticking out into the English Channel.

The last 20km of today's stage from Carhaix to Cap Fréhel are likely to be the toughest. With the high cliffs of Brittany all around the cyclists will make their way through cross and head winds as they head back towards the coast and the finish.

There will be cross winds and a finish on a headland. So an awkward one to control, but I don't think an awkward one to call. I think HTC are ready, Mark Cavendish will have been getting them geed up. He wants this, you've seen him going for Sprints and finishes when he can, he is hot, just hasn't had the positioning he always wants. I expect better today.
