No rest for the weary in stage 7, as seven categorised climbs punctuate the 185 kilometre trip from Digne-les-Bains to Cannes. The peloton will be pleased to reach the coast at Cannes, but the race won't be over. With four Cat. 3 climbs, one Cat. 2, and two Cat. 1 mountains spread evenly throughout the parcours, stage 7 could provide as many fireworks as the day before. Twenty kilometres separate the final summit of the Col du Tanneron and the finish in Cannes, but unlike previous days there are fewer extended lulls between climbs to allow the peloton to regroup.
