Tour de France 2019: Stage 9 profile
Riders just can’t catch a break. Hilly, with climbs to finish, this is another tough day and the rest day is only on Tuesday. The stretch to the Côte de Saint-Just (3,7km at an average of 7,3 %), at 13kms from the finish at Brioude, is just another little treat the organisers have blessed riders with. How sweet.
Profile: Another hilly stage, with a category one climb nice and early.
