Tour de France 2022 Route stage 13: Bourg d’Oisans - Saint-Étienne
Friday 15 July - The 13th stage of the Tour de France goes from Bourg d'Oisans to Saint-Étienne. The race adds up to 192.6 kilometres.
Bourg d’Oisans mostly serves as the start hub after a stage to L’Alpe d’Huez. This time is no different. Four editions ago, the race travelled to Valence, where Peter Sagan sprinted to victory. Five years prior, the riders traversed into the high mountains and Rui Costa soloed to triumph in Le Grand Bornand.
We’ll see the riders head out in northeasterly direction. The first 27 kilometres go downhill before the Côte de Brié – 2.4 kilometres at 6.9% – offers KOM contenders a chance to gain some points, after which the route continues on the flat to the foot of the Col de Parménie.
The Parménie is a 5.1 kilometres climb at 6.6%. The route then continues – mostly on narrow, rolling roads – towards the third and last classified climb of the day. The Côte de Saint-Romain-en-Gal is 6.6 kilometres long and averages 4.5%, while the summit is crested with 44 kilometres to go. Moments later the Col de la Croix Régis presents a minor obstacle before the route descends to Rive-de-Gier.
The next 20 kilometres are a rolling false flat to La Talaudière. The riders move through the village with 7.6 kilometres on the flat ahead of them. A sprint finish of a small group is the most likely outcome in Saint-Étienne.
The last Tour de France visit to the capital of the Loire department dates back to 2019. Thomas De Gendt went on a daring exploit in a race with seven climbs and 3,750 climbing metres. Finishing 6 seconds ahead of the chasing duo Thibaut Pinot and Julian Alaphilippe, the Flemish attacker pulled it off and he won from the breakaway.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
