All set, Marianne Vos?
The Tour de France Femmes may be just three stages from finishing, but the Jumbo-Visma star is going to need to produce the defensive performance of her life if she is to keep the maillot jaune.
The kindest of those three tests comes on Friday, the last time the climbs have the audacity to be classed as hills rather than mountains.

The Cote de Grendelbruch offers 8% worth of incline for 1.2km before the Cote de Boersch tests the lungs of those in contention in the last 10km of the day.
The stage finishes in Rosheim, a town renowned for its Romanesque architecture - and sure to provide a picturesque backdrop for the downhill finish. It’s close to the German border but after this, the race heads south to what should be a famous finish.
Vos leads the general classification by 20 seconds, with the likes of Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) and Demi Vollering (SD Worx) waiting to pounce now the going is about to get tougher.
