Stage 8: Semur-en-Auxois/Colombey-les-Deux-Églises (183.4 km, flat)

There are five categorised climbs in the first two-thirds of this stage. The relentless ups and downs may put a strain on the legs at the point when the sprinters' team-mates are starting to think about setting up a bunch finish. But the last three kilometres of the final straight, which rise slightly but steadily, could be the ideal place to bring the peloton back together. Start in the little village of Semur-en-Auxois, its second time on the Tour. Finish in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, stage-town for the first time, renowned for being the location of La Boisserie, General de Gaulle's family home.
