Stage 14

Saturday July 21 2018 - Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Mende - 187 km Flat

The peloton will be wishing this was another flat interim stage before the Pyrenees, but the stage gets harder in te last 60 kms with a sucession of rolling short, steep climbs before the final climb of the cote de la Croix Neuve and short run into Mende.

It will surely be a day for a breakaway as the GC and sprinters teams won't want to waste too much energy early on and the Yellow jersey's team will save their legs for the finale.

If it's hot and less windy, today will be a brutal stage with those with heavy legs coming out of the Alps.
