We start with the Côte de Thizy-les-Bourgs (4.3km at 5.6%), after about twenty kilometers, followed by the Col de Ecorbans (2.1km at 6.9%). Then again several ups and downs until the middle of the race with the flying finish line. From there the stage will surely heat up. The trio climbs one after the other: Col de la Casse Froide (5.2 km, rate 6.1%), Col de la Croix Montmain (5.5 km, rate 6.1%), Col de la Croix Rosier (5.3 km, rate 7.6%), with a seconds bonus at the summit . From the summit to the finish line, 28 kilometers will still manage to stir the situation.
12.52 The 168.8 km from Roanne to Belleville-en-Beaujolais is scheduled today for a break that could give width and moves in the standings.
12.50 Hello, and welcome to the live broadcast of the twelfth stage of the 2023 Tour de France.
OA Sport friends, good morning, and welcome to the live broadcast of the twelfth stage of the Tour de France 2023! 168.8 km from Roanne to Belleville-en-Beaujolais for a break that can give width and moves in the standings. After four Jasper Phillipsen climbers are once again champions.
its malignant stage Kilometers from the plain will be practically zero. We start right away with two GPMs from Class III, then a very long ups and downs all the way to a triple climb in very quick succession at the end: Col de la Casse Froide (5.2 km at 6%), Col de la Croix Monmin (5.5 km at 6.2%) and Col de la Croix-Rosiere (5.4 km at 7.7%)Without a moment’s rest. From the eyebrow to the finish line there will be 28 km to go.
The profile and a very difficult weekend on the horizon suggest a new possibility of a breakaway victory. So there will be many competitors and in the first kilometers a battle can ensue at breakneck speed to get into the right attack. Matias Skjelmos, Matej Muhorik, Matteo Jorgenson, Nelson Pauwels, Julian Alaphilippe, but also Woot van Aert and Giulio Ciccone are just some of the big names that can aim for success.
The ground is also fertile for an interesting battle between the ratings men. The profile is very suitable for the characteristics of Tadej Pogacar, who could still try to redeem something from Jonas Vingegaard. However, the many kilometers after the eyebrow could discourage a Slovenian. Instead, you should pay attention to those who aim at the platform, who can use today’s platform to catch up.
Departure from Roanne is scheduled for 13.20. We at OA Sport will tell you every moment of this very interesting stage with our stage life life, Provide you with minute-by-minute, real-time updates. Impossible to miss!
