Stage 7: Mont-De-Marsan to Bordeaux – 170 km
Date: Friday July 7, 2023
Stage type: Flat
What to watch for: An attempt to distance the pure sprinters on the only category 4 climb
Stage summary: Flat. Flat flat. Flatty flat flat.
The goal of this stage is simple: Get out of the Pyrenees, get up to Bordeaux so we can all have a nice glass of wine and celebrate … Mark Cavendish’s record-breaking stage win? It only seems right.
Dane Cash’s picks: Jasper Philipsen looks like the fastest sprinter at the Tour right now and there’s little reason to expect that to change on the very flat seventh stage. That said, Caleb Ewan, Phil Bauhaus, and Mark Cavendish should be in the mix as well, with Fabio Jakobsen more of a question mark after his previous crash.
