A route through Lourde !!
The 9th Stage in this years Tour de France started off in St.Gaudens & ended in the town of Tarbes. This is a very untypical stage in Pyrenees as with stage the visit to Pyrenees & south France ends and though there are two mountain stages in the infamous Col d’Aspin & the Col du Tourmalet, there is over 70 kms of straight downhill stretch after the climb where the peleton can catch up with any breakaway.
