Stage 16: can the sprinters' teams bring it back together?BergMann

Tomorrow's a pretty schizoid stage. Naturally the guys with climbing skills will be on the attack for the first half of the race, question is, can a group stay away over the final 80km following the finishing climb?

What makes me wonder are the _three_ sprint bonifications on offer before the race even gets to the finish line, and guys like O'grady, Friere & Zabel are climbing well enough at this point in the race to think about going with a break if it occurs just before the final climb.

Does anyone think that there are enough sprinters' teams left to bring it all back together?
