Tour de France 2024 Route stage 10: Orléans - Saint-Amand-Monrond

Tour de France 2024Tuesday 9 July - The Tour de France travels from Orléans to Saint-Amand-Monrond. The route amounts to 187 kilometres and does not exceed an elevation gain of 1,000 metres. So it's fair to say the 10th stage is flat.

Orléans, which is situated on the Loire, hosted Le Tour on twelve occasions. The last stage start happened in 2001. The race went to Evry, where Erik Zabel sprinted to victory.

That was 23 years ago and another sprint finish is a likely option at the end of the stage to Saint-Amand-Monrond. The route is virtually flat. Echelons are really the only way to thwart a bunch sprint, just like in 2013. That stage was won by Mark Cavendish won de etappe, who powered to victory in a sprint-à-neuf.

The 10th stage stage runs predominantly south. Just after Issoudun, with some 60 kilometres remaining, the route turns southeast and enters exposed terrain. Echelons could be lurking here.

Julian Alaphilippe was born in finishing venue Saint-Amand-Montrond.
