Tour de France stage 11-21

So tomorrow i’m leaving for france and the last stage of the Tour. I don’t know how much i’m gonna be able to post, but in case here’s my favorite on each stage:
11: Peter Sagan
12: Peter Sagan
13: Vincenzo Nibali
14: Vincenzo Nibali
15: Marcel Kittel
16: Tony Martin
17: Vincenzo Nibali
18: Vincenzo Nibali
19: Marcel Kittel
20: Tony Martin
21: Marcel Kittel
Sagan is the best sprinter who can hang on up the climbs in stage 11 and 12, but he haven’t been able to take the victory yet.
Nibali looks very strong on the climbs, and now that Contador and Froome is out I can’t see anyone who can take the victory from him. But perhaps a breakaway will go in. Maybe Rodriguez can beat him up one of the climbs if he rides smarter then today, or stop going for all the mountain points.
Kittle have looked incredible strong at the sprints and it’s gonna be hard to beat him, perhaps Greipel or Kristoff if they gets the right help from the team.
Tony Martin is amazing! He just goes on, on stage 9 he got some help but held the last 40 km alone. And at stage 10 he sat in front of Kwiatowski over 120 km with no help. Its gonna be hard to beat him at the TT
Stage 16 I think is especially hard to guess a winner. The top on the HC mountain is 20 km from the finish line and you need to be able to climb well and go downhill to win. The climb will property be too hard for Sagan. Maybe Rodriguez will try an attack, we also got Nibali who really can go downhill. The climb is maybe to hard for Tony Martin, but if he still have some power in those leggs he might try to go in the breakaway.
I know I just have 4 riders on 10 stages but I think it’s gonna be hard to beat them, and I think the breakaway will make it all the way to the finish on more than one of those stages.
We probably won’t see a lot of changes on the green and yellow jersey, at least not the leaders. But the mountains jersey is still pretty open whatever it looks like Rodriguez have a good grip on that jersey. But then we have the white jersey, i would guess Pinot but Bardet looks also pretty strong.
And at last, my guess on top three on the general classification:
1: Nibali
2: Valverde
3: Porte
Pretty much the same as it is now, but thats just my point of view, what’s yours?
