On paper Stage 1 looks little more than a prologue at just 7.5km, however when you add in some serious gradients this stage will be a lot more challenging than it appears on paper. To add to the intrigue each team will commence the stage together, however every rider will be given their own individual time at the finish line. It raises the question; Will your team work together or will you race each other to the top to establish your GC rider for the rest of the tour?  This ascent will not decide the tour, but with a number of categorised climbs to come in the following days it will show us who the real contenders are.
