Tour de FranceMarseille

An individual time trial on the streets of Marseille. This is the last chance for Chris Froome to lose the Yellow Jersey.

Green Jersey Michael Matthews ( Aus – SUN – 141 ) [Green] 364 points
Polka Dot Jersey Warren Barguil ( Fra – SUN – 143 ) [Polka Dot] 169 points

Note: Wikipedia has a simple article on the Mountain classification used on the Tour. The basic fact is that climbs fall into five types, with the four numbered types decreasing in difficulty as the numbers get larger, and then there is the Hors Catégorie, literally “without category”, which generally makes you look for an elevator or Sherpas.
