Privas (dpa) – For three hours in the sixth stage of the 107th Tour de France after the start in Le Teil, it will be a relaxing day, then it is time.
Three mountain classifications in the Massif Central await the last 50 kilometers before reaching the finish on the 1560 meter high Mont Aigoual. It is not a real mountain finish, even if it goes up 14 kilometers before the end of the stage from the Col de la Lusette – a mountain of the first category. 8.3 kilometers with an average gradient of four percent should not deter the top favorites in the final, but the rest will have to struggle. It could be a good day for some outliers for which the yellow jersey cannot pose a threat.
