Stage 7

Friday July 13 2018 - Fougeres to Chartres - 231 km Flat
 

Some say Friday 13th is unlucky, but in France this isn't necessarily the case, however this is the longest stage which heads inland away from the Atlantic coast towards the outskirts of Paris before heading north towards Belgium.

This stage is ideally suited to the sprinters and the Green jersey and sprinters teams will no doubt be at the front controlling the race. A breakaway will be lucky to survive all the way to the line on this stage.

The GC contenders show have an easier day today, following wheels and staying out of trouble.
