Stage 9

Sunday July 14 2019 - Saint-Étienne to Brioude - 170 km Med Mountain

Stage nine pays tribute to Romain Bardet by finishing in his hometown, Brioude.

One might recommend to be part of a breakaway to hope for success once in Brioude. But only those that will have been valiant on the Mur d’Aurec-sur-Loire, for instance, can conquer glory. A final selection will be made to go on the Côte de Saint-Just (3,7km at an average of 7,3 %), at 13kms from the finish at Brioude.
