Tour de France 2020 Route stage 6: Le Teil - Mont Aigoual

Tour de France 2020 stage 6Thursday 2 July - The 6th stage on the Tour de France dips its toe in the Massif Central. The race from Le Teil to Mont Aigoual amounts to 191 kilometres. The last 26 kilometres run mostly uphill.

Le Teil is a small town on the banks of the Rhône River. The peloton sets off to enter the highly picturesque Ardèche region. On lumpy roads the riders head for an uphill finale.

To be precise, an uphill in three stages. After 165.5 kilometres in the saddle the riders move through Le Vigan. Shortly, they tackle the Col des Mourèzes, which is a 6 kilometres with an average gradient of 4.8%. A few kilometres on the flat usher in the hardest part of the route. After Mandagout the route returns to climbing again, often at double digit gradients. The Col de la Lusette is 11.7 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 7.3%. The first three riders over the summit gain time bonuses of 8, 5 and 2 seconds.

The riders crest the unprecedented Lusette with 14 kilometres remaining. Following a downhill section the Mont Aigoual appears. The final climb is 8.3 kilometres long and slopes at 4%.
