2020 Tour de France Stage 8 Route Preview

Saturday, September 5 - Stage 8

Stage 8 – 141 km (88 miles) – Mountain

The first Pyrenees stage was designed on a course that will be both dynamic and demanding. In less than 100 kilometers, the riders will have to reach the Col de Menté followed by the Port de Balès and the Col de Peyresourde. A fine downhiller could then have the opportunity to make a difference on a descent of around ten kilometres to the finish. – Christian Prudhomme

Heading for the hills the Tour tackles the Peyresourde at the end of the relatively short stage.


Heading down from the Peyresourde, the rider that risks the most may win the day. Top 3 stage winner picks: Alaphilippe, Buchmann, Zakarin.
