The race sets off near the Pont du Gard. This ancient Roman aqueduct crosses the Gardon River 25 kilometres northeast of Nîmes. The routes moves through the Rhône valley and visits the famous Roman Theatre of Orange before continuing to Vaison-la-Romaine. The Col de la Sentinelle is crested under 10 kilometres to go. The climb is almost 6 kilometres and slopes at around 5%. As the Sentinelle stirs op the finale, a bunched sprint in Gap seems unlikely.
Gap is a regular host of the Tour the France. The last three stages ended in solo victories: Thor Hushovd (2011), Rui Costa (2013) and Rubén Plaza (2015).
Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line in the 17th stage of the 2019 Tour de France.
