The 2021 Tour will leave today from Andorra, where he spent the second day of rest, to return to France. 169 kilometers between Pas de la Casa and Saint Gaudens, with four qualifying ports: two second, Port (11.4 km at 5.1%) and Portet d'Aspet (5.4 km at 7.1%), one first, Core (13.1 km at 6.6%), and a fourth, Aspret-Sarrat (a mile of 800 meters at 8.4% seven km from the finish line). The favorites themselves said in their press conferences that the breakaway will triumph as it is favorable terrain and not so hard as to unleash movement among the contenders for the title.

So everything indicates that Wout Poels, Mike Woods and Nairo Quintana will resume their fight for the mountain jersey. The 33-year-old Dutchman from Bahrain, winner of the Liège in 2016, has 74 points, 66 for the Canadian from Israel and 64 from the Colombian from Arkea. "I predict a tremendous fight throughout the Pyrenees," said Poels after receiving the garment in Andorra. Meanwhile, the national squad enters the third week of the 2021 edition and has not achieved a partial victory since Omar Fraile conquered Mende in 2018.
