Stage 7

Friday July 08 2022 - Tomblaine to La Planche des Belles Filles - 176 km Mtn Finish
 

Making it's return to the race after a year out, the Planche is back, but this time it includes the vicious gravel kick to the line to top out the Super Planche des Belles Filles for the first time since 2019.

Although this is the first summit finish of the 2022 Tour, it doesn’t come at the end of an authentic mountain stage. However, Super Planche des Belles Filles always guarantees a high-intensity finish. As the one big climbing test of the day, the gaps at the finish shouldn’t be that substantial, but the riders’ finishing positions will give a strong indication of the form of the podium contenders.
