In 2017, Warren Barguil gave France its first French Bastille Day winner since 2005. Obviously, French fans love to see Romain Bardet win the stage in his hometown.
The race gets underway in Saint-Etienne and travels from one hill to the next. The route barely features a flat metre, while the finale is sure to detonate the firework. With 12.5 kilometres out the Tour de France crests the steep Côte de Saint-Just and the first rider over the summit earns bonus seconds before flying down to the line. Halfway in the descent the route kicks up again only to continue downhill to Bardet’s birthplace.
Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line in the 9th stage of the 2019 Tour de France.
