Description

This stage of the Tour de France sees the riders face mountains, albeit of a medium height, for the first time in the competition. The riders race from Aigurande to Super-Besse, with climbers favouring this stage. This insanely-difficult, leg-pumpingly exciting Lycra-clad extraordinaire was born in 1903 amidst much eye-brow raising and jaw-dropping. The French people soon took the Tour de France to their hearts however as it placed their towns, their countryside and their mountains in the spotlight. The Tour de France covers 3,500km over 21 gruelling stages: 10 flat stages, 7 mountain stages, 1 medium mountain stage, 2 individual time-trial stages and 1 team time-trial stage. The current leader is always possible to spot, as he'll be wearing the coveted yellow jersey.
