In terms of vertical meters climbed today’s stage is the 3rd highest, with the top 2 to come in the Alps next week.

Another summit finish for the riders and it’s one that the race hasn’t been on before. Situated above the beautiful town of Foix, the Prat d'Albis is a typical Pyreneean road, irregular gradient & a rough surface, a climb where if you follow the wrong move you can easily blow up and lose chunks of time. With a time trial, the Soulor and Tourmalet finish yesterday and another 4000m of climbing in the legs before getting to this climb, will the riders have anything left?
