Mads Pedersen wins the 13ᵉ stage in Saint-Etienne

What ? A 192.6 kilometer long thirteenth stage made to regain one’s senses after two grueling days in the very high mountains. The alpine stages have certainly done some damage to the peloton but this stage between Bourg d’Oisans and Saint-Etienne seems promised to the sprinters, if they still have some in their legs.

Where ? A departure from Bourg d’Oisans to cross the Isère from east to west, before switching to the Loire and an arrival in Saint-Etienne.

When ? The actual start was given at 1:20 p.m. and the finish should be judged around 5:37 p.m., if the riders are going at an average speed of 45 km/h.

On which channel ? On France Télévisions and Eurosport.

Who hosts the live? Valentin Baudry and Arthur Verdelet, from the peaks of Austerlitz, with Aude Lasjaunias and Alexandre Pedro on the roads of the Tour.
