MAP

The 2019 Tour will go through two countries, Belgium and France. It will visit the three Belgian regions (Bruxelles-Capitale, Flanders and Wallonia) and 37 departments of France.


TIME TRIALS

Like in 2018, there are two time-trials on the menu:

  • by teams for stage 2, Bruxelles Palais Royal > Brussel Atomium on a distance of 27kms
  • individual for stage 13 in Pau on a distance of 27kms. It’ll be on Friday the 19th of July, a date that marks the 100th anniversary of the Yellow Jersey.

TOURMALET

It’ll be the third time that a finish is set at the top of the Pyrenean mountain after 1974 (victory of Jean-Pierre Danguillaume) and 2010 (victory of Andy Schleck). The Tourmalet is also to date the mountain that has been climbed the most in the history of the Tour: 82 times.


ISERAN

At an altitude of 2 770 metres, the col de l’Iseran that hasn’t been climbed for twelve years will be the summit of the 2019 Tour. It will be climbed for the 8th time and only for the second time by its south side.


BONUS SECONDS

They will be distributed at the finish of each normal stage and will offer respectively 10, 6 and 4 seconds to the first three.


BONUS POINTS

It was an innovation on the last Tour de France: bonus-point sprints will be reintroduced in 2019. Bonus seconds will be awarded at the top of the 8 following hills or mountains at key places of the course:

  • Stage 3: côte de Mutigny
  • Stage 6: col des Chevrères
  • Stage 8: côte de la Jaillière
  • Stage 9: côte de Saint-Just
  • Stage 12: Hourquette d’Ancizan
  • Stage 15: Mur de Péguère
  • Stage 18: col du Galibier
  • Stage 19: col de l’Iseran

It will have no influence on the points classification.
