When: Friday, July 13

Where: Semur en Auxois-Bourg en Bresse

Length: 199.5km

DESCRIPTION

Today's stage is right on the dividing line between the first flat week and the mountainous stage. After yesterday's hilly stage, the Tour goes back to basics with another largely flat affair punctuated by two fourth category climbs.

The sprinters will be looking for one last win before the mountains, so they will be chasing down any breaks in order to ensure a bunch sprint in Bourg en Bresse.
