Tour de France 2022 Route stage 19: Castelnau-Magnoac - Cahors

Tour de France 2022Friday 22 July – The 19th stage on Le Tour travels on flat roads from Castelnau-Magnoac to Cahors. The route goes north, away from the Pyrenees that dominated the previous days.

The riders kick off in Castelnau-Magnoac, roughly 40 kilometres north of the Pyrenees. On flat to rolling roads the route heads northwards to cross the Garonne halfway. Then the parcours continues slighty more eastward in the direction of Cahors.

Given the flat route a bunch sprint is the most likely scenario. But given the fact that the Tour is almost three weeks underway nothing is certain. In last year’s 19th stage the breakaway battled it out for the win on a similar route. Matej Mohoric left his fellow attackers behind in the last 24 kilometres and he soloed to victory in Libourne.

The winner in Cahors succceeds another pure bred attacker. In 1994, Jacky Durand took the spoils in the only ever Tour de France finish in the medieval wine town.
