Tour de France 2019 Stage 7 Preview

Saturday, July 12 - Stage 7

Stage 7 – 230 km (143 miles) – Flat

On the longest stage of the Tour de France, the peloton will go through Ornans, the birthplace of painter Gustave Courbet born in 1819- so it will be 200 years- a reference of the Realism art movement in the 19th century. And that’s certainly a quality that the breakaway riders will need, to stay clear of the perfectly timed pursuit of the pack led by the sprinters’ teams.

– C. Prudhomme

Intermediate Sprint 

After a relatively hilly start the peloton will fight for the intermediate sprint nearly 200 kilmeters into the stage.

Final 5 Kilometers

After battling for the intermediate sprint, teams will reshuffle their leadouts and focus on the closing kilometers.
