Stage 9, Bastille day and a finish in a town that exemplifies small town France.

We’re riding through the Auvergne and like yesterday the stage barely features any flat terrain. One unclassified climb that caught my eye is on the D19 road which the peloton climbs to and descends from the plateau at Cistrieres which sits at 1,000m; off the descent and they hit the foot of the La Fage climb where the road immediately kicks up for 2 Km at 6%. Not insignificant and will have those will tired legs grumbling. but reward of the first rest day on Tuesday should pull everyone through.
