Second Act in the Pyrénées

Following a rest day in Andorra, stage 16 starts from Pas de la Casa, an unprecedented hosting town. It makes it a long downhill start in which a breakaway is likely to be formed by attackers who haven’t yet ridden to glory in the 108th Tour de France. The situation will certainly be settled by going up to the Col de Port (km 54) where the match between the players in the polka dot jersey is likely to continue, just like at the Col de Core (km 101.1) or at Portet- d’Aspet (km 136.5). If a large group forms, the contenders for the stage victory will certainly rush the selection there, perhaps reserving a final battle in the short 800-meter wall that will precede the finish in Saint-Gaudens.
