Le Tour 2016 – Stage 16

Tour de FranceMoirans-en-Montagne to Bern

Distance: 209 kilometers.

Officially this is a sprint stage, but the profile is a bit hilly and there is the Cat 4 Côte de Mühleberg before the cobblestones of Bern. Dry cobblestones are a bit iffy, but wet ones are a definite hazard to rider and bikes.

Peter Sagan took his third stage win, but it required some high tech equipment to decide and he thought he was second to Alexander Kristoff. The picture on the web looks like a tie.

Tomorrow is a rest day before the Alps.
