Stage Date: Thursday, July 11, 2019
Description: The favourites of the Tour never miss out on La Planche des Belles Filles “rendez-vous”. They will this time face an even tougher finish (1 extra kilometre… including two additional steep climbs), and all that after taking on several other climbs including the Markstein, the Ballon d’Alsace and the Col des Chevrères. A rather heavy menu for an even heavier deadline.
Distance: 161
Departs: Mulhouse, France
Arrives: La Planche des Belles Filles, France
Stage Type: Road Race
Classification: High Mountain

Billed as the first serious sort-out for the General Classification, La Planche des Belles Filles did not disappoint. Only two survived from the big break of the day, with Dylan Teuns too strong over the brutal final 100m to beat Giullio Ciccone who was nearly at a stand still. Ciccone was not without a prize though, as his gap over the chasing peloton was just enough to take the Yellow Jersey from Julian Alaphillipe.

With a big shake up in the General Classification, the stage results are now in.
