Tour de France 2021 Route stage 19: Mourenx - Libourne

Tour de France 2021 stage 19Friday 16 July - At 203 kilometres, the 19th stage of the Tour de France travels on rolling terrain from Mourenx, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, to Libourne, near Bordeaux.

It has been awhile since Mourenx last saw a Tour de France peloton. Following finishes in 1969 and 1970, La Grande Boucle set off from the village in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in 1999 and 2005.

The riders head in an almost straight line to the north for a likely bunch sprint in Libourne, east of Bordeaux.

Libourne was used twice as a finish in the Tour de France, both times in a time trial. Jacques
Anquetil powered to triumph in 1957, while Panasonic won the chrono race for teams in 1992.

Groupama-FDJ rider Mickaël Delage is born in Libourne.
