2019 Tour de France: Stage 17 preview

Stage 17: Pont du Gard-Gap
Date: July 24, 2019
Distance: 200 km
Stage type: Hilly

This transition stage has 'breakaway' written all over it. With three race-deciding mountain stages just beyond it, the only concern for the GC leaders and their teams will be to reach Gap without suffering any mishaps and having expended as few resources as possible. Similarly, the sprinters are unlikely to instruct their teammates to chase down any escapees thanks to the presence of the third-category Col de la Sentinelle little more than a dozen kilometres from the finish.
