The final opportunity for the sprinters to steal the limelight follows on this stage. However, the decisive factor will be how well the fast men have recovered from the last few days. With a start lap from Tübach along Lake Constance, the stage gets off to a quiet start topographically. This changes as soon as we enter the half-cantons of Appenzell Inner- Ausserrhoden. The sprinters have to master some short but tough climbs in order to be part of the final sprint in Weinfelden. Another scenario for this stage is that a strong leading group will form to give the sprinter teams a run for their money.
