Le Tour 2020 – Stage 6

Tour de FranceLe Teil > Mont Aigoual

Distance: 191 kilometers.

A “Hill” stage with two minor climbs followed by a Cat 1 and an uphill run to the finish. It starts at 132 meters and ascends to 1560 meters at the finish.

  • Cap de Coste 146.0 km (cat 3: 2.1km @ 7.3%)
  • Col des Mourèzes 163.0 km (cat 3: 6.1km @ 4.8%)
  • Col de la Lusette 177.5 km (cat 1: 11.7km @ 7.3%)

The intermediate sprint is at 125.5 km at Saint Hippolyte du Fort.

The first 143 kilometers are basically flat, but things favor the climbers after that. The end is scaling the Col de la Lusette followed by the ending of 8.3 km @ 4% to reach the finish on Mont Aigoual.

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.
