If the overall standings have only been stirred so far, they are going to be well and truly shaken on what is a brutal day in the mountains, following Tuesday’s rest day.

With four renowned summits to conquer, starting with the hors-catégorie Aubisque and the Tourmalet, followed by the first-category Aspin and Peyresourde, the climbers are going to be in their element.
