Sauveterre-de-Béarn > Larra-Belagua 156km
Well, well, well, that was incredible. What Jumbo-Visma have done in the last few years is nothing short of remarkable, they deserve all the plaudits coming their way. They now sit 1-2-3 on GC, and it looks impossible to do anything about this, they are set to win all three grand tours and do something that was once thought impossible. In terms of the race, their dominance is great news for breakaway riders, which brings us nicely to this preview.
Another hot day with very little wind.
First up, after 47km of racing, is Col Hourcère, which is a very difficult HC climb.
Port de Larrau is next, another HC climb, this is a big day for the KOM jersey.
This is the final climb of the day, it’s a cat 1. Not the hardest climb in the world, but after a tough day in the saddle, it’s going to feel harder than the numbers suggest.
