Attackers paradize

Stage 14 is an appetizer of the Pyrénées, a perfect stage for attackers who like climbing and lay quite far down on GC. It’s no surprise that Nairo Quintana purposely sat up at the 10km mark to lose more time on stage 13, which means more freedom to break away and chase KOM points… and maybe more. The stage victory is set to come from an escape from far out. A breakaway group is likely to split in the ascent to col de Saint-Louis (4.7km at 7.4%) whose summit is with 16.9km to go. The 2km in the middle of the climb are the perfect springboard to the stage win in Quillan.
