The 2017 Tour de France will return on Tuesday after a second rest day. Riders will tackle Stage 16 as competitors attempt to reduce the lead held by Team Sky’s Chris Froome in the general classification standings on a relatively flat stage covering 165 kilometres.

Trek-Segafredo’s Bauke Mollema recorded his first stage win in the Tour on Sunday, per ITV Cycling. Yet with just six stages left the general classification candidates will start to make their moves, though they may wait until after the final stage in which sprinters are likely to prevail.

For a full breakdown of the remaining stage schedule, visit the race’s official website.

Its official Twitter account shows Froome still wearing the yellow jersey atop the GC:

All stages can be viewed on Eurosport 1 and ITV 4 in the UK, while U.S. audiences can watch on NBC Sports.

The race resumes on Tuesday with a stage sure to favour sprinters. In particular, “finishes in the Rhone Valley often end up with bunched sprints,” according to race general director Christian Prudhomme, per the Tour’s official website.

Those chasing a breakaway will also be happy with the stage profile, according to the same source: “The roads of the day are perfectly known by the amateur riders of the Ardechoise cyclosportive, with a topography that could give confidence to breakaway riders.”
