Stage 4 Preview

Tomorrow the peloton head towards their first summit finish in Mûr-de-Bretagne. Starting the day in the Breton port of Lorient, a sporting and cultural haven that was voted by L'Equipe to be Frances sportiest town in 2010,riders will tackle just one cat 4 climb of Côte de Laz before heading for Mûr-de-Bretagne: a 2.0 km climb with a maximum gradient 6.9 % that will suit the likes of Philippe Gilbert or Thomas Voeckler.

A nervous peloton will be on their guard tomorrow. With Hushovd and Millar on equal standing in the GC and Evans just 1 second behind there is everything to play for. Astana will be on the look out to take advantage of any mistakes, careful not to make any of their own to add to Contador's woes as he lies in 69th position overall.
