Stage 6 – 160.5 km (100 miles) – Mountain
The favorites of the Tour never miss out on La Planche des Belles Filles “rendez-vous”. They will this time face an even tougher finish (1 extra kilometer… including two additional steep climbs), and all that after taking on several other climbs including the Markstein, the Ballon d’Alsace and the Col des Chevrères. A rather heavy menu for an even heavier deadline.
