Tour de France 2020 Route stage 7: Millau - Lavaur
Friday 4 September -At 168 kilometres, the 7th stage on the Tour de France travels from Millau to Lavaur. Sprinters or attackers?
The stage from Millau to Lavau precedes a weekend of climbing in the Pyrenees. Which does not necessarily mean that this will be an easy day, as racing in the Garonne region is never easy.
The areas of Aveyron and Tarn are far from flat, while another factor that could thwart the sprinter’s plans are strong winds. The region is renowned for it.
The riders start near the Millau Viaduct, which is the tallest cable-stayed road bridge in the world, and set off for a lumpy stage with a number of climbs standing out. The longest ascent is situated halfway. The Col de Peyronnenc adds up 13.5 kilometres, but the average gradient is doable: 3.9%.
Right after a prolonged downhill the riders tackle the second categorised climb of the day. The Côte de Paulhe is just 1.1 kilometres long and slopes at 7% before a last bumpy phase leads onto 40 kilometres on the flat.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
