"One thing is for sure, pure sprinters will not be here anymore"says the race director about the arrival in Brioude where grew Bardet, one of the local champions with Jessy Trémoulière who was named best player of rugby world last year.

The sub-prefecture of Haute-Loire (7100 inhabitants) receives the Tour for the second time. But in 2008, Brioude was just a start.

Departure from Saint-Etienne at 13:05, launched at 1:25 pm, arrived at Brioude around 17:31 (average calculated at 42 km / h).
