Tour de France 2023 Route stage 7: Mont-de-Marsan - Bordeaux

Tour de France 2023Friday 7 July - Le Tour is back in Bordeaux for the first time since 2010. A sprint finish is the most likely outcome in the city on the estuary of the Gironde River. The race adds up to 169.9 kilometres.

It’s the 57th time since 1947 that the biggest cycling contest in the world finishes in Bordeaux. But, remarkably, the last finish dates back to 2010. So that’s 13 editions without a Bordeaux finish on Le Tour. The stage winner succeeds Mark Cavendish, who outgunned Jean Dean and Alessandro Petacchi in 2010.

Eddy Merckx is the rider with the most Tour de France stage wins in Bordeaux, namely four in the years 1970-1974.

The route of the 7th stage is a sprinter’s dream. The only hurdle is the Côte de Béguey – 1.2 kilometres at 4.4% – with its summit almost 50 kilometres before the finish.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
