Tour de France 2019 Route stage 10: Saint-Flour - Albi
Monday 15 July - At 217.5 kilometres, the 10th stage of the Tour de France is a race between Saint-Flour and Albi. The undulating route favours the sprinters, although attackers will have some wildest dreams of their own while venturing into the volcanic territory of the Aubrac.
The 2013 Tour de France saw its last finish in Albi. 23-Year old Peter Sagan won the bunch sprint ahead of John Degenkolb and Daniele Bennati. That stage came from the south, Montpellier.
Stage 10 in the 2019 Tour de France comes from the north. Saint-Flour will be the departure place. The Aubrac, a volcanic and granitic plateau at an elevation of around 1,200 metres, is an intermediate passage, as are four moderate climbs. The riders tackle the Côte de Mallet (2.2 kilometres at 5%), Côte de Chaudes-Aigues (3 kilometres at 6.6%), Côte d’Espalion (5.2 kilometres at 4.9%) and Côte de la Marlic (3.6 kilometres at 4.7%), while the rest of the route is not exactly flat either. Yet, the undulating terrain is unlikely to obstruct a bunch sprint in Albi.
Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
