|Mountainous stage 10 is the last in the south|
Here is a reminder of the demanding stage-10 profile for Monday. The big summit finish will surely see more changes to the overall classifications. The GC favorites will likely fight hard for advantages, as the stage is followed by a welcome rest day on Tuesday (there is however a long transfer north before stage 11). After the rest day the riders will tackle the only individual time trial of the race on Wednesday which will further establish the pecking order ahead of the big Pyrenean stages to come.

My pick to win stage 10: Joaquim Rodriguez.
I think Purito will want to go for whatever time he can grab in the mountains, before the TT on stage 11.
