 While leaving the areas of Cantal and Aveyron, the numerous painful hills should give a few options to breakaway candidates. But the horizon should then be far clearer for the sprinters who will find in Montauban a perfect terrain for an exciting explanation.

Last summer, the town welcomed a stage of the 21st women's Semaine Cantalienne race and some might remember a criterium taking place there back in the nineties. But to enjoy the Tour de France, the inhabitants of Arpajon had to travel to the neighboring city of Aurillac. The first time was in 1959 to witness the victory of Henry Anglade, future runner-up to Bahamontes on the podium in Paris. In 2008, Spaniard Luis León Sánchez had triumphed there.
