Also on the second day in the pyrenees wait at the 107. Tour de france again some difficulties. But the final could not be as difficult as on saturday. Whether emanuel buchmann this time the tempo of primoz roglic and co. Can go with?
ROUTE: before the first day’s rest, the riders have another climb in the pyrenees to look forward to. Although the mountains on the ninth leg over 153 kilometers from pau to laruns on sunday are not so high, they are all the steeper. In particular, the col de marie blanque, a climb of the first category, has an average gradient of twelve percent in the last four kilometers. But after that there are still 18 kilometers to the finish line.
FAVORITES: it is possible that again a group of riders will have a chance to win the stage. The contenders for the overall victory will certainly test themselves again on the last hill, but due to the long descent we can’t expect any big time gaps. In attacking mood is currently young star tadej pogacar, who still has to make up time after his mishap on friday. The slovenian will use every chance to attack.
Yellow jersey: british adam yates still three seconds ahead of ex-ski jumper primoz roglic in the overall classification. After defending the yellow jersey bravouros on saturday, the chances are not bad that he will save it also in the rest day. Colombian last year’s winner egan bernal has slipped to fifth place, but is only 13 seconds behind yates.
GERMAN: "blob not lose time again" is the motto for emanuel buchmann. In the overall standings, he is already 1:25 minutes behind leader adam yates. It’s not that much, but it’s still hard to catch up with the density at the top of the climb. A weak day in the pyrenees would have put an end to the dream of a podium finish.
