Stage 12 - Friday July 16: Castelsarrasin - La Mongie, 197.5 km

By Deena-Maree Faulkner

The first of the Pyrenean stages, today's stage begins at Castelsarrasin, with 120 kilometres of mental preparation before the riders hit the category one Col d'Aspin. Then it's all downhill for the next 12km, before the riders face the next climb of the Col du Tourmalet, finishing at the ski station of La Mongie. This climb is where Lance Armstrong won two years ago after his battle with Beloki.


Km 173: Col d'Aspin, 12.5 km at 6.3%
Km 199: La Mongie, 15 km at 6.8%
