The Strava data: the 13th stage was designed with the social network

The peloton will roll through numerous peaks of the Massif Central in a stage designed largely thanks to the data and segments published on the social network.


The Tour de France peloton heads to the Massif Central this Friday in a stage full of climbs and steep slopes that will conclude at the top of Puy Mary, in Pas de Peyrol. A stage in which the social network Strava has played a very important role since from the social network they have commented to this newspaper that Thierry Gouvenou, designer of the Tour stages, has used Strava and its different tools such as heatmaps, the creator routes and application segments to design the route of this thirteenth stage of the Tour.
