Lannemezan to Plateau de Beille (195km)
Stage 12 is one that you won’t want to miss, and one that many of the riders will be dreading. The day begins with around 50 kilometers of relatively flat road before tackling four extremely tough categorized climbs. These include a summit finish up the Plateau de Beille, which features a nearly 16-kilometer ascent averaging almost 8% gradient.
