93rd Tour de France - ProT
France, July 1-23, 2006
Stage 8 - Sunday, July 9: Saint-Méen-le-Grand - Lorient, 181 km
After a tough time test, this stage across the rolling hills of central Brittany to the gritty seaport of Lorient will be a day when the big teams will likely let an early break get up the road. Rabobank's Oscar the Cat Freire is a likely candidate for the win for his 2nd stage win at Le Tour. After stage 8, the Tour entourage will board a charter flight to Bordeaux and rest day #1.
