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

Tour de France 2019 stage 7Friday, 12 July 2019 - At 230 kilometres, the 7th stage of the Tour de France is set to travel from Belfort to Chalon-sur-Saône. It has been a while since the race visited the town - in fact, more than 30 years. (Slideshow route/profile)

In 2012, La Grande Boucle 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.

Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line of the 7th stage of the 2019 Tour de France.
