This is an individual time-trial race set mostly on 2 large hills over a total of about 35 km.

If you fail to win this stage while doing the full tour or you are doing each stage achievement individually then I highly recommend using either Chris Vroome or Braulio Waggons (both are British and in Team Sky) for this race. I tried a few times with Nabali, Schleck & Contador but kept finishing 4th-8th.

My first attempt with Waggons I finished 2nd despite making a few errors hitting the sharp corner barriers and slowing me to a complete stop. My team mate Vroome came 1st by about 1 second but I still got the achievement (Achievement is awarded no matter which team member wins ...... same as every other stage in the game).

Stay in Low gear throughout the entire race (I never changed to high gear once) and keep pace (cn_RT) at maximum but watch out for sharp bends when going downhill as you might have to slightly brake for some of them.

Occasionally do a steady sprint for 4-5 seconds (tapping cn_A) when the gradient of the road is roughly level. As soon as you get to the top of second hill then it's time to up the pace as the rest of the race afterwards is mostly all down slope. Keep letting your red bar regenerate when on final sprint to finish line and then repeat sprinting.

If you are consuming too much of the yellow energy bar and don't have anything left by the last bit of the race then restart and take it a little easier with the sprinting cn_A.

This was a tricky one to win as you can't use team tactics, use food/health boosts or take advantage of save files (will not let you save your game during a time-trial race unfortunately) for this one.

Hope this is of some help smile
