Tour de France 2019 Route stage 11: Albi - Toulouse

Tour de France 2019 stage 11Wednesday 17 July - Following the first rest day, the Tour de France continues with stage 11 from Albi to Toulouse. The 167 kilometres route meanders through the south of France against the backdrop of the Pyrenees. The roads are gently rolling though, so a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome.

Lilian Calmejane is born in Albi. Possibly this inspires the French attacker to try his luck in the last stage before the Pyrenees.

Yet, chances are arrival place Toulouse will roll out the red carpet for the fast men in the peloton. As was the case in 2008. Following a rain-soaked race, the sprint teams finished off the escape at 3.5 kilometres out before Mark Cavendish sprinted to his second-ever stage win on the Tour de France.

The finish is near the Capitole de Toulouse in the city centre. As the route features only two moderate climbs in the first half of the course, the enormous building is likely to see a sprint finish at its doorsteps.

Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.

The race is expected to finish around 17.30 local time.
