Stage 9 – 170.5 km (106 miles) – Hilly
One might recommend to be part of a breakaway to hope for success once in Brioude. But only those that will have been valiant on the Mur d’Aurec-sur-Loire, for instance, can conquer glory. A final selection will be made to go on the Côte de Saint-Just (3,7km at an average of 7,3 %), at 13kms from the finish at Brioude.
