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!
