The stage kicks in the French town Sauveterre-de-Béarn in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The riders ascend the Col Hourcère (13 kilometres at 7.8%) to return to Spanish territory via the Puerto Larrau (14.5 kilometres at 7.7%). After the Portillo de Lazar the route returns towards France, but just before reaching the border the stage is done and dusted. The summit of the finish climb lies close to the Spanish-French border, in Larra Belagua.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
