A Flat stage with a Cat 4 climb.

  • Côte de Bareille 12.1 km (Cat 4: 1.9km @ 5.3%)

Green Jersey Mark Cavendish (DQT – 055) [Green] 304 Points
Polka Dot Jersey Wouter Poels (TBV – 166) [Polka Dot] 88 points*

Team: Bahrain Victorious ( TBV – 161-168 ) [Yellow numbers]

*The Numbers 2 are wearing the White and the Polka Dot as Number 1 is wearing Yellow.

Barring something unusual the Jerseys seem to be determined. Tomorrow is a time trial, followed by the parade into Paris. The final question is whether Mark Cavendish can win the sprint in Paris and take his 35 stage to stand alone on the all time Tour stage wins.

Note: Wikipedia has a simple article on the Mountain classification used on the Tour. The basic fact is that climbs fall into five types, with the four numbered types decreasing in difficulty as the numbers get larger, and then there is the Hors Catégorie, literally “without category”, which generally makes you look for an elevator or Sherpas.
