Tour de France 2018 stage 19 profile

It will be the final day in the mountains. 200 km-long stage features the epic Col du Tourmalet mid-stage with the Soulour-Aubisque combo in the finale, but this time that combo will be climbed via the Col des Bordères back route, which hasn’t featured in the Tour since the 1980s.

“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.” –Christian Prudhomme
