Find out where to watch the fourteenth stage Tarbes-Tourmalet of the 2019 Tour de France on TV and live streaming for free on smartphones, tablets and computers
It's getting serious. Another Pyrenean mountain stage at the 2019 Tour de France: in the fourteenth stage there is the climb and arrival on the Tourmalet, over 19 kilometers uphill with an average gradient of 7.9%. The stage measures only 117 kilometers, but the route is very treacherous: in addition to the Tourmalet there is also another first category grand prix: Col du Soulor (11.7 kilometers at 7.8%).
So far the Tour de France 2019 has had an absolute dominator: the Frenchman Alaphilippe. In Yellow Jersey since several days, he also won yesterday's time trial, gaining fourteen seconds from a specialist like Geraint Thomas. If he overcomes also the Tourmalet obstacle, he has all the cards in order to arrive in Paris with the Yellow Jersey. And become the undisputed idol of the French. Today's stage, however, does not suit his characteristics: hard mountains and an uphill finish that seems to be sewn on Bernal, the Colombian of Ineos in the fight for the Yellow Jersey.
The fourteenth stage of the Tour de France 2019 will be broadcast on TV and live streaming by Rai and Eurosport: here's what to do to follow the Grande Boucle.
Tour de France 2019, stage fourteenth Tarbes-Tourmalet: start and finish times
The start of the fourteenth stage of the Tour de France 2019 is set for 13:30, while the arrival is expected for 17:00-17:30.
The route of the fourteenth stage of the Tour de France 2019
Short stage, but full of pitfalls. Tarbes-Tourmalet measures only 117 kilometers, but the elevation gain exceeds 4000 meters. We are faced with three grand prix of the mountain: one of the fourth category, one of the first and one of Horse Categories (the Tourmalet). We start from Tabers and after 18 kilometers there is the first asperity, a hill of fourth category that should not create difficulties. The first real mountain of the day begins after 48 kilometers: the Col du Soulor, 11.9 kilometers with an average gradient of 7.9%. At the end of the descent, a short falsopiano begins that will bring the cyclists to the beginning of the Tourmalet: 19 kilometers with an average gradient of 7,4%.
The favorites of the fourteenth stage of Tour de France 2019
Yesterday's time trial has created the first splits in the general classification: who wants to win the Tour de France 2019 will have to attack on Tourmalet and show to be the strongest. Hardly a breakaway will arrive at the arrival: the bonuses guaranteed to the stage winner can make the difference. Logic would have it that among today's favorites are Thomas, Bernal, Kruijswijk, Quintana and Pinot. But watch out for Alaphilippe: the French rider is running an incredible 2019 Tour de France and could hold his own even on long mountains like the Tourmalet.
