Stage 11 is a classic Tour transition stage that heads due west from Marseille along the Mediterranean coastline to Montpellier and the heat and wind will likely play a role. A break should go early but the sprinters' teams will smell blood in the final 50 kilometres for a bunch gallop in Montpellier.
Km 38: Côte de Calissanne: 1.7 km climb @ 5.6 % grade / 4th Cat.
Km 31.5: La Fare-Les Oliviers
