The seventh stage of the 2017 Tour de France travels 213.5kms from Troyes to Nuits-Saint-Georges into wine country.  This is yet another flat stage, well suited to the tastes of the sprinters once again.  That being said, the closing kilometres of the stage enters a region known for its crosswinds, so nothing is a foregone conclusion. 

 

 

There is one climb for the stage: The cat-4 Cote d’Urey (2.5kms; 4.2%).  The intermediate sprint is in Chanceaux at 108kms.  These both should go to the breakaway riders.

Since the Jura await the riders the next two days—including a particularly challenging day on Sunday—the sprinters need to make the most of things with this stage since it will be awhile before their next chance at victory!
