Date: Tuesday July 19
Distance: 179 km
Following the rest day, it’s straight into the Pyrenees for more mountain action. The climbing is backloaded today as the peloton makes its way to Foix. The first of the two first-category climbs is the Port de Lers – 11.4 km at 7% – followed by the Mur de Péguère – 9.3 km at 7.9% – the site of sabotage in the 2012 Tour.
Who will win stage 16?
A descent into the finish could offer downhill maniacs like Matej Mohorič the chance to pull off something spectacular. Let’s just hope for no finger-to-the-mouth shushing again this year.
