Tour de France 2019 Route stage 7: Belfort - Chalon-sur-Saône

Tour de France 2019 stage 7Friday 12 July - The 7th stage of the Tour de France travels from Belfort to a likely sprint finish in Chalon-sur-Saône. At 230 kilometres, it is the longest race in this year's Grande Boucle.

In 2012, the Tour de France included Belfort for the last time – also as a departure place. That race was played out on hilly terrain and finished in Porrentruy, where Thibaut Pinot – only 22 years of age – soloed to his first ever Tour de France stage win.

In 2017, Chalon-sur-Saône hosted a finish in Paris-Nice. Following a flat race with a lot of tailwind Sam Bennett outsprinted a field with Marcel Kittel and Alexander Kristoff. The Tour de France finished four times in the town on the Saône River with Brian Robinson (1959), Jean Stablinski (1961), Rik Van Linden (1975) and Thierry Marie (1988) taking the flowers.

Chalon-sur-Saône is likely to see a sprint finish in the 7th stage of this year’s Grande Boucle. The route is rolling in the first half and as good as flat in the second half.

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