Five stages to watch in the 21-leg Tour de France, which starts on Saturday at Mont-Saint-Michel and ends on July 24 in Paris:---STAGE 1, July 2, 188 kilometers (117 miles) from Mont-Saint-Michel to Utah Beach (Sainte-Marie-du-Mont) in the Normandy region:The Mont-Saint-Michel, a World Heritage Benedictine abbey perched on a rock off the Normandy coast, will provide a picture-postcard start for the race as the Grand Depart returns to home roads after visits to Britain and the Netherlands in the last two years.The first stage ends at Utah Beach, where Allied troops landed on D-Day in 1944.Following the coastline for long stretches, wind could play a big role, with the possibility of splitting the peleton. In the end, though, sprinters are expected to vie for the stage win and the honor of wearing the first yellow jersey.Germanys Marcel Kittel and Britains Mark Cavendish are the pick of the bunch.---STAGE 5, July 6, 216 kilometers (134 miles) from Limoges to Le Lioran in the Massif Central:After the sprinters have the spotlight in the opening four legs, this should be the stage where the race really starts.Featuring five climbs in a constant up-and-down finish, including the 1,589-meter (5,213-foot) Pas de Peyrol, it will mark the first time that the Tour has gone above 1,500 meters this early in the race since the leg-breaking start in 1979, when there were three stages in the Pyrenees over the first four days.Look for overall contenders Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana and Alberto Contador to spring into action for the first time.The Tour wont be won here but it could be lost.---STAGE 8, July 9, 183 kilometers (114 miles) from Pau to Bagneres-de-Luchon in the Pyrenees:The most difficult stage on paper, featuring the legendary Col du Tourmalet plus three more serious climbs in quick succession -- the Hourquette dAncizan, the Val Louron-Azet and the Col de Peyresourde.After hours in the saddle, the leaders will be pleased to take on the high-speed descent from the Peyresourde into the finish in Luchon, which is not highly technical.Whoever holds the yellow jersey after this stage will have taken a major step toward overall victory.---STAGE 12, July 14, 184 kilometers (114 miles) from Montpellier to Mont Ventoux in the Provence region:French climbing specialists Romain Bardet and Thibaut Pinot surely have circled this stage for special attention. Besides containing one of the races most famous climbs, the stage will be held on Bastille Day.Defending champion Chris Froome was the stage winner when the Tour last scaled Ventouxs barren, 1,909-meter (6,263-foot) peak in 2013.Ventoux was also the site of an epic contest between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in 2000, and where British rider Tom Simpson died in 1967 after he used a lethal cocktail of amphetamines and alcohol.Heat is usually a factor on the grueling climb up Ventoux and there will be the added factor of wanting to keep something in reserve for the races first -- and longest -- time trial a day later.---STAGE 18, July 21, 17-kilometer individual time trial from Sallanches to Megeve in the Rhone-Alps region:Its the Tours first mountain time trial since the 2004 race against the clock up lAlpe dHuez.Besides the flat opening four kilometers (2 1/2 miles) and a short descent at the finish, its entirely uphill.While there will still be two more stages in the Alps, this leg could be decisive for overall victory.

The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1.CALGARY -- After losing 35-22 to the host Toronto Argonauts in the 100th Grey Cup last year, linebaker Juwan Simpson says the Calgary Stampeders expect to take the next step and become CFL champions this season. "Were ultimately working for one goal and thats to win the Cup," said Simpson, whos entering his sixth season with the Stamps. "Im a confident person. I think the rest of the guys are just as confident. "Regardless of what happens, we know its a long season. Were going to put our best foot forward week in and week out and see what happens." Veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn, who completed 14-of-27 passes for 222 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in last years Grey Cup game against the Argos, said he definitely wants a shot at redemption. "Even getting there and actually losing the game, it gives you more motivation to get back and win it," Glenn said. "Thats our ultimate goal, but weve got to take it one game at a time." Glenn was thrust into the starters role last season to compensate for starter Drew Tates injury-plagued season. He didnt disappoint, completing 325-of-487 passes for 4,220 yards and 25 touchdown passes in the regular season. His completion rate of 66.7 per cent was the best of his 12 CFL seasons. Although Glenn, who turned 34 on June 12, is slated to back up Tate once again to start the 2013 season, hes keeping a positive attitude and preparing as if he could be called upon for his services at any moment. "Whatever position youre in on this team, you have to be ready to go," Glenn said. "You cant take practices off or days off in meetings and stuff. You have to prepare and prepare as if youre going to play and start. I think thats better to do it that way. It keeps you focused during the game on helping the other guys that are playing out there." Meanwhile, Tate wants to put last years nightmarish season behind him. After guiding the Stamps to a 38-10 win over the Montreal Alouettes in the 2012 season opener at home, Tate dislocated his left shoulder during a Week 2 loss in Toronto. Tate, who completed just 46-of-63 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns, returned to play in the final two games of the regular season before fracturing a bone near the wrist of his throwing arm in Calgarys West Division semifinal win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Tate has refused to let those two major setbacks from deterring him this season. &"If you try to alter your play based on not getting hurt, youre just going to affect your game and youre not going to be playing at the highest level that you can be playing," Tate said.dddddddddddd "You just hope that youve got somebody watching over you every time you fall and thats about it." Whether its Tate, Glenn or third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell at the helm of Calgarys offence, theyll have plenty of weapons at their disposal once again this season. "Im certainly confident in our quarterbacks," said running back Jon Cornish, who tied for the league lead with 11 rushing touchdowns and added two others through the air. Cornish was named the CFLs most outstanding Canadian last season after leading the league with 1,457 rushing yards, which broke Normie Kwongs 56-year-old Canadian single-season rushing record. The Stamps also boast a talented receiving corps which will be led by veteran Nik Lewis (100 catches last year, 1,241 yards and 10 TDs), Marquay McDaniel (53 catches, 744 yards and three TDs), Maurice Price (18 catches, 405 yards and three TDs) and Joe West (24 catches, 353 yards and two TDs). "Im very optimistic," Tate said. "I said this before camp that Ive never been on a team with as much talent at the play-making positions that we have this year. As a quarterback, you cant ask for anything more." Rene Paredes will once again handle the field-goal kicking duties, while Rob Maver is back for his second season as Calgarys primary punter. Both Paredes and Maver were chosen as West Division and CFL all-stars last season. When asked to identify the biggest gain in the off-season for the Stamps, head coach and general manager John Hufnagel responded by pointing to the overall speed of his defensive players during training camp and the pre-season. "I thought overall our defence in general played fast in the two pre-season games," Hufnagel said. "I want that type of speed to continue with areas of improvement." Simpson will be counted upon for his veteran leadership on defence as will fellow linebacker Malik Jackson, defensive backs Brandon Smith and Keon Raymond and defensive lineman Charleston Hughes. "Weve got a lot of vets returning," Simpson said. "Weve got some young guys to come in and help us. I think weve got a good group of guys and Im looking forward to actually getting out there and playing four quarters."
