The 11th stage of the 2015 Tour de France runs 188kms from Pau to Cauterets-Vallee du Sain-Savin, and climbs are the order of the day.
There is an intermediate sprint at 56.5kms in Pouzac, but there are 6 categorized climbs, including the HC of the Tourmalet, which will be the true test:
- Km 48.5
- Km 61.5
- Km 74.5
- Km 117.0
- Km 147.0
- Km 184.5
If anyone has the courage to attack, this could be a good chance to make up some of the time lost on Stage 10. But, with so many climbs, it comes down to a question of tactics.
