Tour de France 2020 Route stage 19: Bourg-en-Bresse - Champagnole
Friday 18 September - The 19th stage on the Tour de France offers a chance for fast men who have survived the Pyrenees, Jura and Alps to showcase their talents. The 160 kilometres race travels from Bourg-en-Bresse to Champagnole.
Located in the foothills of the Jura Mountains, Bourg-en-Bresse hosted several Tour de France stage starts in recent years. In 2016, the race went to Culoz, where breakaway riders Jarlinson Pantano and Rafal Majka battled it out for the stage win. The retired Colombian – after a positive test for EPO last year – took the spoils. Two years prior to that the riders left Bourg-en-Bresse to head for Saint-Étienne and Alexander Kristoff outsprinted Peter Sagan and Arnaud Démare.
Those races went south, but the riders head north this time to follow a route on undulating terrain. The finish is in Champagnole – also known as the Pearl of the Jura -, which is a small town on the River Ain. The Mont Rivel is nearby, but the sprinters are treated to a fairly straightforward finish.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
