Tour de France 2019 Stage 12 Preview

Saturday, July 18 - Stage 12

Stage 12 – 209.5 km (130 miles) – Mountain

The Pyrenean part of the Tour will start in the valley and that should motivate the usual breakaway suspects to give it a go but it’ll carry on with climbs up Peyresourde and La Hourquette d’Ancizan. Only the best climbers among them will be in a position to triumph as they head down to Bagnères-de-Bigorre.

– C. Prudhomme

 

Categorized Climb

Stage 12’s Hourquette d’Ancizan is just a warm up for the final days in the Alps.

Intermediate Sprint 

Over 130 kilometers into the stage, the intermediate sprint will belong to the breakaway.

Final 5 Kilometers

For those who survive the stage’s two major climbs in the lead, the downhill into the finale will likely keep the race separated.
