Stage 12 - Friday, July 20: Montpellier - Castres, 178.5km

By Tim Maloney, European Editor

Friday will be another hot day that starts from Montpellier, capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, and another transitional stage as the Tour heads inland from the Mediterranean coast to the textile town of Castres. Although an early break should get away in the flat first half of the stage, a counter-attack on the tough 10.4-kilometres climb of Montée de la Jeante with 60 kilometres to go could be successful.

Km 27.5: Côte de Cantagal: 1.6 km climb @ 4.3 % grade / 4th Cat.
Km 58: Côte du Mas-Rouet: 2.4 km climb @ 4.3 % grade / 4th Cat.
Km 74.5: Col du Buis: 2.6 km climb @ 4.8 % grade / 4th Cat.
Km 130.5: Montée de la Jeante: 10.4 km climb @ 6.1 % grade / 2nd Cat.

Km 81.5: Herepian
Km 101: Olargues
