There will be little room for recovery for the GC contenders as Stage 11 will see the riders tackle some of the most famous climbs of the Tour de France history on the Pau-Cauterets path.

TOUR DE FRANCE STAGE 11 BETTING PREVIEW
The first half of the stage will see the riders taking on three not-that-difficult climbs on the way. The second part presents the Col d’Aspin (12km, 6.5%) and the Col du Tourmalet (17.1km at 7.3%). The Tourmalet is by far the hardest challenge in this stage and summits with 41km to go. From the summit the pack will head downhill for over 30 kilometers, before reaching the Cat. 3 Côte de Cauterets (6.4km at 5%) which summits 3.3km from the finish.
There are no riders that can attack Chris Froome at the moment. The Brit looked very dominant on the Col de Soudet on Tuesday. With opponents still shocked and Tourmalet very far from the finish line, we should see Team Sky controlling the race, a possible winning breakaway and a fairly defensive day for the overall favourites behind Froome.
Riders including Alberto Rui Costa, Pierre Rolland, Thomas Voeckler, Ryder Hesjedal, Julian Arredondo, Louis Meintjes and Dani Navarro just to name a large few should now have a license to chase either stage wins, or the King of the Mountains jersey.
Other dark horses could be Rafal Majka, Roman Kreuziger, Michael Rogers, Bob Jungels and Steven Kruijswijk,
As to the GC contenders, we don't expect any of Contador, Nibali, Van Garderen or Quintana go on the attack as they will only wake up Chris Froome and his lieutenants Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas (both impressive on Tuesday).
Go for the breakaway candidates, definetely!
