Stage 6

Thursday July 07 2022 - Binche to Longwy - 220 km Hilly

Starting in Belgium, the race makes its way to Longwy. Peter Sagan was the last winner atop the climb in Longwy with the punchy sprinters expected to be involved yet again at the end of the sixth stage.

This is a long trek through the Ardennes, and the contenders for victory will have togauge their effort well if they want to shine in the finale, which is even tougher than the one that featured the last time the Tour visited Longwy. The leading puncheurs will be to the fore on the Mur de Pulventeux, situated 6km from the finish (800m long and averaging 12%), before having the opportunity to show their explosive qualities on the Côte des Religieuses.
