A long and largely flat Stage 11 of the 2020 Tour de France will suit the sprinters.

When the race visited this same area in 1978 it was Eurosport’s own Sean Kelly who came out on top in a bunch sprint, and the peloton’s fast men should slug it out again in Poitiers.

Stages this flat are a rarity in the 2020 edition of the race, so sprinting teams will be looking to take full advantage, limiting the opportunity for a breakaway to stay out in front.

Weather forecast

It will be hot on the Tour route with 28° temperatures forecast.

Gusts of 25km / h are forecast, which will worry the riders, but the prediction is those it will be largely head winds.


Among the riders who have already won in the city of Poitou at the Tour, three are in the peloton of this year’s Tour de France: Matteo Trentin in 2015, Sonny Colbrelli in 2016 and Jesus Herrada, winner twice in 2013 and 2014 .
