Stage 15

Sunday July 21 2019 - Limoux to Foix - 185 km Mountain Finish

TV viewers will make the best of this day to enjoy and discover the Cathar castles. The riders will be more focused on the new climbs on the day’s course: the Côte de Montségur as an appetiser and the finish at Prat d’Albis, after a 12-km climb at an average of 6.9%. And that will bring the total to 4 700 metres of elevation.

The final Pyrenean stage will offer a sense of drama given it runs though the ancient ruins of Cathar strongholds and fascinating geological formations and hills so steep that tourists to the region are often seen pushing their cars.
