107th edition of the Tour de France

August 29th - September 20th 2020

Back to the Planche des Belles Filles on September 19th !

The "Grande Boucle" is back in the Vosges du Sud for a 5th stage finish at the Planche des Belles Filles in 8 years !

It is a crucial stage, with a 36km time trial, from Lure to the Planche des Belles Filles (passing through Mélisey), the eve of the finish in Paris. The perfect occasion for Thibaut Pinot, the local of the stage, to enter the legend of the Tour.

Comment of Christian Prudhomme : "Les contre-la-montre de fin de Tour de France sont les moins prévisibles de la discipline. Ils le sont d’autant moins lorsque leur tracé propose une montée comme celle de La Planche des Belles Filles, longue de 5,9 km à 8,5 % de pente moyenne. Si les écarts s’y prêtent, les positions sur le podium pourraient voler en éclats."

"Time trials at the end of the Tour de France are the most unpredictable of the sport. Moreso with a climb like the Planche des Belles Filles, 5.9 km long with a 8.5% average incline. If the leads are small enough, the podium could shatter."
