  • Description

A new Tour for the GC men, comprising of 5 stages in the often overlooked Pyrénées-Orientales. The first day is hardly tough, the only notable difficulty coming far from the finish. However with the last 50kms near the coast, especially a section crossing the Pointe de la Corrège, the wind could create a different scenario to the bunched sprint we expect. Stage 2 comprises of several intermediate ascents, followed by the key penultimate climb of the Col de la Brousse. With 10kms at 7% from the Tour de France start town of Céret, the climb will certainly whittle the field and should be decisive for stage victory. With a time trial and 2 mountain stages to follow it is not sure that the favorites will go on the offensive. The midpoint of this race comes in the form of a 32km individual time trial along the rugged coastline to Port-Vendres. And then finally. a double taste of the mountains. The first stage to Mantet houses no particularly hard climbs, with a section of the course traversing Spain. However the final difficulty of the Col de Mantet is undoubtedly the hardest of the race. A short and technical descent follows, in a finale similar to the renowned finish at the Arrate Sanctuary. Finally, the last day promises a showdown on the only summit finish at Font-Romeu. The Col du Garavel and Col de Jau will start things off 80km in, while the final sequence of the Col de la Llose and the Col du Calvaire offers plenty of opportunity to attack. The finish will be held up above the 2000m mark, near the Pic de la Calma, where only a strong climber will prevail.
