Tour de France 2017 Route stage 19: Embrun – Salon de Provence
Friday, 21 July 2017 - At 220 kilometres, stage 19 is the longest stage in the 2017 Tour de France. The route, travelling from Embrun to Salon-de-Provence, seems to be tailor made for fast men. Or are we going to see an attacker who gets lucky?
The first part of the race is hilly, which will no doubt inspire a bunch of escapees to give it a go. In fact, stage 19 might be the last chance in the Tour de France of 2017 to form an early break. However, it will be hard to stay ahead of the peloton as the sprint teams will do everything to bring them back since the arrival in Salon-de-Provence is perfect for a bunch sprint.
The race leaves from Embrun, in the 2013 Tour de France host to a climbing time trial that was won by Chris Froome. In this stage the riders descent from an elevation of 881 metres at the start to 78 metres at the finish in Salon-de-Provence.
The race takes in two KOM climbs in the first 43 kilometres. Col de Lebraut amounts to 4.7 kilometres at 6%, while Côte de Bréziers is a 2.3 kilometres climb at 5.8%. The route continues on rolling roads until Col de Pointu looms at kilometre 171, which is a 5.8 kilometres ascent with an average gradient of 4.1%. The last 45 kilometres run on descending and fat roads to the line in Salon-de-Provence.
The old town of Salon-de-Provence is located on a hill with a castle: Château de l’Emperi. Nostradamus lived in the town before he died in 1566. He is widely known for his predictive powers. Who is going to win today, Nostradamus?
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
