Stage 13 – 27.2 km (17 miles) – Individual time-trial
The only individual time-trial of the 2019 Tour will take place in Pau that has already welcomed two time-trials in the past: in 1939 (victory of Swiss Karl Litschi) and in 1981 (victory of Bernard Hinault). A powerful all-rounder, comfortable when the road rises could, like Hinault, seize the opportunity to capture the Yellow Jersey. A very special collector’s jersey that day marking the 100th anniversary of the Yellow Jersey.
