The three small climbs are over and done with by 120km, leaving 110km of flat to the finish, perhaps into the wind. The intermediate sprint is towards the end of the route, at 196.5km.

Stage 7, Tour de France 2019: favourites for the stage win

It looks likely to be a battle between the sprinters' teams - including Deceuninck Quick-Step for Elia Viviani and Lotto Soudal for Caleb Ewan. It's also a chance for Dylan Groenewegen of Jumbo Visma, and I'm backing him for the stage win.
