Stage 15: Samatan to Pau
||Stage 16 >>
When: Monday 16th July
Starting Point: Samatan
End Point: Pau
Samatan - Pau, 158.5km
There are three more plain route to compete in and the next two will definitely play in many riders mind needing to get a good result. However, they should take all route at it’s the last and this terrain should see the climbers trying to breakaway. Any riders wanting to get themselves in the forefront and since there is going to be many flat kilometres so the team of sprinters will get the best out of Stage 15.
Funny enough there are three mountain passes but it won’t be as tough as the one the day before. They will passing Cote de Lahitte-Toupiere with a 2.1 km, then they will go through Cote de Simacourbe at 1.9km climb and finally passing the Cote de Monssut-Audiracq with a 1.5km climb. This stage is all about getting the sprinters to sprint so teamwork is going to be crucial here.
