Tour de France 2021 today, stage 14: profile and route

The mountain range that the Eastern Pyrenees offer today, with three 2nd and two 3rd grade ports, will mean a good opportunity for ambushes.

The 183 kilometers between Carcassonne and Quillan will mean the first approach to the Pyrenees today, with a mountain profile of five scoring passes (three second and two third) very suitable for ambushes. The Col de Saint-Louis (4.7 km at 7.4%) is crowned 17 km from the finish line and at the top it offers bonus seconds. If the men in the general standings are in the mood for a ruckus, this is the hot spot of the day.

Tadej Pogacar warned his rivals in the yellow's daily conference: "If I feel good in the Pyrenean days, I will attack, although surely this 14th day will favor more the brave who get into a breakout. Nor do we intend to burn the team with what missing ahead ".

A Omar Fraile stopped Astana on the way to Nîmes to protect Alexey Lutsenko, seventh overall (58 '' behind third, Vingegaard). The Kazakh squad aspired to partials with Fraile, Aranburu, Ion Izagirre or Fuglsang, but it seems that the plans have changed. Movistar should also be seen, and Nairo will defend the mountain jersey: "It's a nice goal."
