When Thursday July 10
Where Aigurande-Super Besse
How long 195.5km
IMPACT ON CLASSIFICATIONS
The Tour?s first summit finish, which comes shortly after the day’s other second category climb. The two big climbs at the end won?t be enough to split the favourites but a good time-triallist and good all-rounder may get their chance to wear yellow as an escape is likely to succeed.
? This will be the third time Super-Besse has appeared in the Tour route. Rolf Sorensen won here in 1996, while Paul Wellens won in 1978.
? This is the earliest summit finish in the tour since 1981.
