Stage 8

Saturday July 14 2018 - Dreux to Amiens - 181 km Flat
 

July 14th is a French national holiday, Bastille day, so expect huge crowds as the peloton heads north towards the battlefields of the Somme. With only a few small lumps and an intermediate sprint, it's an ideal stage for a sprint finish.

The GC contenders should have any easier day and the Green jersey and sprinters team will want to control the race, and any breakaway.
