While 2020 sees no summit finishes in the Pyrenees, the planned parcours will be far from plain sailing and definitely exciting to watch and ride!
Cazères-sur-Garonne > Loudenvielle 04 July 2020 – Stage 8 – 140 km – Mountain Stage
CHRISTIAN PRUDHOMME : ‘The first Pyrenees stage was designed on a course that will be both dynamic and demanding. In less than 100 kilometres, the riders will have to reach the Col de Menté followed by the Port de Balès and the Col de Peyresourde. A fine downhiller could then have the opportunity to make a difference on a descent of around ten kilometres to the finish.”
Pau > Laruns 05 July 2020 – Stage 9 – 154 km – Mountain Stage
CHRISTIAN PRUDHOMME : ‘The mountainous program of the day starts with the discovery of the Col de la Hourcère which will immediately precede the climb to the Col de Soudet. For the seventh time since the beginning of the Tour, the riders will ride at an altitude of over 1,500m. They will then battle it out on the extremely steep climb up to the Col de Marie Blanque before heading back down to Laruns.”
