Limoux > Foix, Prat d’Albis 185km. Mountain.
The last Pyrenean stage was won by the British Simon Yates with the yellow jersey Julian Alaphilippe who has maintained the leadership while losing a few seconds on the other overall contenders.
Vincenzo Nibali, Jan Tratnik and Damiano Caruso entered the day’s breakaway that started around the 50th kilometer. “I recovered well after the hard crash of the opening stage in Brussels – says Caruso – and it was right to try to do something good. Unfortunately I was dropped on the ascent of Port de Lers and on the next climb I realized that there were very few energies left”.
“Now there is the last rest day and then two fairly easy stages more suitable for riders faster than me. I hope to recover as much as possible and try to do well in the Alps, The best way will be to get into a new break”.
