After the second rest day of the 2017 Tour de France, the sight of a climb almost immediately on the race’s next stage won’t be a pleasant site for many of the riders after two weeks of hard racing.

While it’s no mountain stage, and should come down to a sprint, stage 16 sets of on a difficult parcours through the Ardèche en route to the finish in Romans-sur-Isère in Drôme.

A category three climb is crested at just 20.5km into the 165km stage, with a category four climb following 40km later with a lot of up and down in between.

But the race should really hot up in the final half of the race with a long descent before a predominantly flat run-in to the finish.

The GC riders should just have to concentrate on staying safe through the day, while the sprinters will be looking for one last chance at glory before the race enters the Alps.

For the full account of the day’s action see our stage 16 report.

The Tour continues on Wednesday with a 183km stage into the Alps from La Mure to Serre Chavalier, with the riders tackling the Col d’Ornon, the Col de la Croix de Fer, the Col du Télégraphe and the Col du Galibier en route to the finish.

The race concludes in Paris on Sunday, July 23.
