Tour de France 2022 Route stage 13: Bourg d’Oisans - Saint-Etienne

Tour de France 2022Friday 15 July - The 15th stage of the Tour de France goes from Bourg d'Oisans to Saint-Etienne - that is, according to the rumours.

Bourg d’Oisans mostly serves as the the start of the stage immediately following a L’Alpe d’Huez stage. 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.

This time there is a race to Saint-Étienne in the pipe line. 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 metresand. 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.

A sprint finish is the most likely outcome of this year’s Saint-Etienne stage. The only climb of the day – Col de Parménie: 5.2 kilometres at 6.8% – is situated in the first half of the route.
