Episode 14 Jul, 20 2019 04:00 pm
Stage 14: Tarbes/Tourmalet Barèges (117 km, mountain) The 2,000-m mark will be passed during this 14th stage of 117 km, with the first difficulty of the Col du Soulor (1,474 m) after 60 km but above all the climb up the Col du Tourmalet (2,115 m). The stage starts in Tarbes. Fans of the Tour will remember that in 1951, as the victory was playing out, Wim Van Est, the first Dutchman to don the yellow jersey, had a spectacular fall into a ravine after climbing the Col d'Aubisque. He lost his yellow jersey but not his life. The Col du Tourmalet, nicknamed the "Giant of the Pyrenees" is often on the Tour's route since it has ventured into the high mountains.

Stage 15: Limoux/Foix Prat d'Albis (185 km, mountain) Another beautiful mountain stage with a backdrop of Cathar castles.

Another chance to admire the famous arenas of the Roman city as well as the Roman aqueduct that the riders will have the privilege of cycling along.

Stage 17: Pont du Gard/Gap (206 km, hilly) The riders will cross the Rhône valley during this 17th stage, riding past the Roman theatre of Orange and passing through Vaison-la-Romaine.

Episode 18 Jul, 25 2019 02:30 pm
Stage 18: Embrun/Valloire (207 km, mountain) The last long stage of over 200 kilometres will give the climbers a chance to show what they are made of. During this beautiful Alpine stage, they face no less than three climbs culminating at over 2,000 metres: the Col de Vars (2,109 m), the Col d'Izoard (2,360 m), and the Col du Galibier (2,642 m). It begins in Embrun, famous for its long-distance triathlon (Embrunman) and ends in the resort of Valloire, where the only arrival back in 1972 saw the victory of Eddy Merckx.
Episode 19 Jul, 26 2019 02:30 pm
Stage 19: Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne/Tignes (123 km, mountain) The 19th stage is quite short but demanding nonetheless due to the climb up to the Col de l'Iseran (2,770 m), the highest road pass in the Alps, which will be climbed only for the 8th time in the history of the Tour. The finish will be in the famous ski resort of Tignes, the setting for the acrobatic ski events in the Winter Olympics of 1992.
Episode 20 Jul, 27 2019 02:30 pm
Stage 20: Albertville/Val Thorens (131 km, mountain) 20th and second-to-last stage featuring the Cormet de Roselend at an altitude of 1,968 metres. It will start in the Olympic town of Albertville. The arrival in Val Thorens, one of the best ski resorts in the world, is the third finish above 2,000 metres in the same event, a first in the history of the Tour de France.
Episode 21 Jul, 28 2019 04:00 pm
Stage 21: Rambouillet/Paris Champs-Élysées (127 km, flat) Last stage of this Tour 2019. A prestigious stage with the traditional finish on the Champs-Élysées, but the sporting aspect is likely to be less important: at this stage, the yellow jersey is often solidly in place on the shoulders of the final winner.
