Stage 7 - Sunday, March 13: Nice - Nice, 135km

As has been customary for the last few years, the final stage from Nice to Nice is no flat parade. But this time it's a little bit easier, as the riders don't have to negotiate multiple ascents of the Cat. 1 Col d'Eze, instead doing a 135 km circuit that passes via the Cat. 2 Cote de Daranus (2.4 km at 6.4%), the tough Cat. 1 Col de la Porte (7.2 km at 7.2%), the Cat. 1 La Burbie (7.6 km at 4.8%) and the Cat. 1 Col d'Eze (7.8 km at 6.1%). After the top of the final climb, it's practially all downhill into Nice and it's possible that the GC could change on the final day.
