Stage 13 - Saturday July 20: Lavelanet - Béziers, 171 km

By Tim Maloney, European editor

Stage 13 bids the Pyrenees and Cathar country adieu, departing Lavelanet at 1pm and heads towards the Mediterranean coast resort of Beziers, which first hosted a stage finish in 1938, and lastly in 1958, which was won by Italian Pierino Baffi, father of pistard Adriano Baffi. This transition stage starts out hilly, but finishes on the coast in Beziers after passing through the flat vineyards of the Herault region.
