  • After a rest day, the peloton will set off towards the Pyrenees starting by a visit of the Tarn department. The team mates of the sprinters should be put to contribution on this course that they can consider as a fine opportunity or potentially a trap! They’ll need to be extremely focused and powerful to organise a bunched sprint just by the “Capitole” building.
Your itinerary
  • Today you will make your way to the Izoard hospitality area in Toulouse from Bagneres de Bigorre. It will take about 2 hours to get there and on arrival your official accreditation will mean that the guides can park near the hospitality area.

A powerful all-rounder, comfortable when the road rises could, like Hinault, seize the opportunity to capture the Yellow Jersey.
