Stage 12 of the 2017 Tour de France sees the riders head into the mountains for the first of two stages in the Pyrenees.

The 214.5km stage from Pau to Peyragudes features six climbs, including the hors-categorie Port de Balès, the first category Col de Peyresourde, and a short final ramp up a second category climb to Peyragudes.

The second of the race’s three summit finishes, stage 12 is one of the few chances in this year’s race that Chris Froome‘s rivals have to put the yellow jersey under pressure.
