Stage 11 - Thursday, July 13: Tarbes - Val d'Aran/Pla-de-Beret (Spain), 206.5 km

More mountains on the menu, including a new stage finish atop Pla-de-Beret in Spain. This long, hard stage will show just who the real contenders are for the win in the 93rd Tour de France. With one beyond-category and four first category climbs on the program, there is no margin for error on the second and hardest stage across the Pyrenees. Will a Euskaltel-Euskadi rider try to show off in front of their fervent Basque supporters by attacking on the final 13.5km ascent up to the Spanish ski station of Pla-de-Beret? Don't bet against it!
