- Stage 7: 3h 51' 58" (actual), 4h 11' 35" (prediction), 19' 37" slow (8.46% error)
- Stage 7: 11.68 m/s (42.03 kph or 26.12 mph)
Tomorrow's 184-km (114-mi) Stage 8 is this year's first mountain stage. Beginning in Pau, cyclists will head southeast through the Pyrenees to Bagnères-de-Luchon. A massive HC-climb to the 2115-m (6939-ft) summit of Col du Tourmalet highlights the beginning of the stage. As if that weren't enough, cyclists will tackle a category-2 climb and two category-1 climbs before a fast downhill sprint to the finish. Below is our prediction.
