Final mountain stage to settle scores between the yellow jersey Vingegaard and Pogacar, behind 2’18”
To filter the results in order between the yellow jersey Vingegaard and Pogacar who follows him at 2’18”, the final mountain stage of the tour is ready as a stage. Again, a day too few distances in search of the best offer. It starts with the Col d’Aubisque (16.4 km at 7.1%), then the New Col de Spandelles (10.3 km at 8.3%) and finally the classic access to Hautacam: 13.6 km at 7.8% with 12% peaks at 5 km from the end. Lourdes, where the Virgin Mary first appeared to the patroness Bernadette Soberos on February 11, 1858, means again Gino Bartali, for the first time in this city in 1948. He, the pious Gino, is very loyal. At the top of Hautacam, the Tour came five times: the first with Frenchman Leblanc in 1994, a month before he won the World Championships in Agrigento; The latter, very sweet, with Vincenzo Nibali in the yellow jersey in 2014. One of the shark’s greatest technical performances, so much so that his coach Paulo Slongo revealed to us: “You will never see Vincenzo again on a day like this.” The victory of the fourth stage in a magical tour ended with a victory at the Elysian Fields, 16 years after Pantani.
