Tour de France 2024 Route stage 11: Evaux-les-Bains - Le Lioran

Tour de France 2024Wednesdag 10 July - The 11th stage of the Tour de France traverses the Massif Central. At 211 kilometres, the riders travel from Evaux-les-Bains to Le Lioran. Promising finale with a series of short but demanding climbs!

It’s a first for Evaux-les-Bains on the Tour de France, which is not the case for Le Lioran. The 2016 edition saw a stage finish in the ski area after a finale with the Pas de Peyrol, Col du Perthus and Col de Font de Cère. The same climbs are on the menu in the last 31 kilometres of this year’s 11th stage. So, respectively 4.4 kilometres of climbing at 7.9%, 4.4 kilometres at 7.9%, and 3.3 kilometres at 5.8%.

The Col de Font de Cère peaks with 3 kilometres remaining. Most of it goes downhill before the last few hundred metres rise at 6% to the line.

Eight editions ago, Greg Van Avermaet soloed to victory from the breakaway in Le Lioran. He launched his winning attack on the Col du Perthus and took both stage and the yellow jersey. The Olympic Champion of Rio de Janeiro thus succeeded his compatriot Michel Polentier, who was victorious in Le Lioran in 1975.

The last hour of action is harder than in 2016, as the Peyrol/Perthus/Font de Cère combination is preceded by Col de Néronne, which is a punchy test of 3.9 kilometres at 8.6%. The total elevation gain in the 11th stage of the Tour de France adds up to 4,350 metres.

The first three riders across the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6, and 4 seconds; the first three riders over the Col du Perthus – with 14.6 kilometres left – gain time bonuses of 8, 5, and 2 seconds.
