Sky Double Dips: Froome Takes Stage; Wiggins Takes Jersey

The 157.5-km ride from Belfort, France to Porrentruy, Switzerland will feature seven categorized climbs including four Category 2 ascents and the Category 1 Col de la Croix, the summit of which is 16 km from the finish. Will someone steal the lead or the yellow jersey on the de la Croix and keep it on the downhill run to the finish? Check in at www.roadcycling.com and find out!
