Stage 17

Wednesday July 20 2022 - Saint Gaudens to Peyragudes - 130 km Mtn Finish
 

Four climbs introduce the Pyrenees with a bang as the peloton hits the first of the two final mountain stages of the race. The finish on Peyragudes comes after ascents up the Col d'Aspin, the Hourquette d'Ancizan and the Col de Val Louron-Azet.

The scenario is as sumptuous for the spectators as it is demanding for the leaders, who will have to defend their positions. After crossing the Col d’Aspin and the Hourquette d’Ancizan, attacks could come as early as the climb to the Col d’Azet. And in the final, even the best climbers might flounder when tackling the steep gradients towards the Peyragudes altiport... the third runway to success in the 2022 Tour!
