Lavaur (dpa) – After the Southern Alps and the Massif Central, the 107th Tour de France heads to the Pyrenees in the first week.
The eighth section from Cazères-sur-Garonne to Loudenvielle, which is only 141 kilometers long, has it all on Saturday. Although the goal is not on the mountain, it will still not be easy – especially in the final.
After the ascent to Port de Balès, the first mountain in the highest category of this tour, the 1569 meter high Col de Peyresourde still awaits. Since bonus seconds are also split at the top, the top stars are unlikely to hold back. Finally, the breakneck descent to the finish awaits. Perhaps a great opportunity for specialists such as Primoz Roglic.
