The stage profile

From Nîmes to Carcassonne, the 13th stage of the Tour de France crosses the South of France on Friday on a 219.9-kilometer plain course that links the ancient arenas to the medieval city, two renowned tourist sites.

A single hill classified in fourth category, at the foot of the Saint-Loup peak (Km 51.5), appears on the route in the hinterland although other small bumps are to be borrowed in the vineyards of Minervois, on the borders of Hérault and Aude, before arrival.

“If it’s blowing, the wind could make this stage, very quiet on paper, particularly stressful,” warns race director Thierry Gouvenou. “The length of the course offers an opportunity to go to the end for the breakaways if the sprinting teams are unable to control the race.”

History

City stage for the 11th time in the history of the Tour, Carcassonne (47,000 inhabitants) has become accustomed to hosting the event in the 21st century (6th time since 2004). The Danish Magnus Cort Nielsen, who had beaten the Spaniard Ion Izagirre, is the last winner, in 2018, in the Aude prefecture.

Schedules

Departure from Nîmes at 12:05 p.m. (launched at 12:15 p.m.), estimated arrival in Carcassonne at 5:29 p.m. (time calculated as an average of 42 km / h).
