Stage 7

Friday July 12 2019 - Belfort to Chalon-sur-Saône - 230 km
 

On the longest stage of the Tour de France, the peloton will go through Ornans, the birthplace of painter Gustave Courbet born in 1819- so it will be 200 years- a reference of the Realism art movement in the 19th century. And that’s certainly a quality that the breakaway riders will need, to stay clear of the perfectly timed pursuit of the pack led by the sprinters’ teams.
