Tour de France, Stage 13

Race reaches Pau

After yesterday’s opening stage in the Pyrenees to Luz-Ardiden, the Tour de France has a slightly less daunting profile for stage 13 from Pau to Lourdes.

However with the Aubisque on today’s menu the bunch were still in a for a hard day of racing and covered the first hour at over 49 kph, meaning there was little respite for those with tired legs.

At the start village in Pau most of the talk centred around yesterday’s finish and the current form of Alberto Contador, with the majority of the people Cyclingnews talked to believing that the Spaniard is still the favourite for the race.
