Stage city for the 25th time

Prefecture of Hautes-Alpes (05)

40,200 inhabitants (Gapençais)

139,000 inhabitants (Hautes-Alpes)

Long-distance attackers often met with success in Gap, including Jean-François Bernard claiming his first victory here in 1986 and Pierrick Fédrigo twenty years later. Since then, finishes in the city have gone to Norwegian world champion Thor Hushovd in 2011 and, two years later, Portuguese rider Rui Costa, a man with the rainbow jersey written in his future. When the Tour last visited Gap in 2015, Rubén Plaza ensured the tradition of successful breakaways remained unbroken.
