LAISSAC Fete de Tour de France

WELCOME TO LAISSAC

Tour de France 2016 - 06/07/2016 - Etape 5 - Limoges/Le Lioran (216 km)

Christian Prudhomme’s comment

Hard to tell in what state or shape the peloton will be at the end of this stage. It won’t be mountains but the journey through the Aubrac Plateau will be covered at an altitude of over 1000 metres during around fifty kilometres. Further away, the climb up to the Col de Peyra Taillade has gradients of 14% at some places. And that could certainly offer surprises when comes the time for a verdict in Le Puy-en-Velay.
