Stage 19 – 200.5 Kilometers – Mountains
“There are no miracles in cycling but the start in Lourdes represents a last opportunity to change the general classification by pushing hard on the pedals in a direct confrontation. It’ll be in the frightening Aspin-Tourmalet-Bordères-Soulor-Aubisque sequence that the destiny of the Yellow Jersey could still be played.” C. Prudhomme
