Stage 18 - Friday, July 25: Bordeaux - Saint-Maixent-l'Ecole, 203.5 km

The last time a town in the Deux-Sevres region hosted the Tour de France was over half a century ago. This stage will be a transitional trek back to Paris, passing through the famous town of Cognac at the halfway point. But no elixir for the Tour peloton, as Stage 18 is quite unpredictable.

The sprinters teams may not want to waste too much energy controlling attacks, and look for Brioches Le Boulangere to be particularly aggressive on Stage 18 as the team is based in the region.
