Stage 19: Your Role - CLIMBER
Today is the last mountain stage and it is going to be a hard one. This is a day which will decide the GC so you are going to ATTACK and go for the stage win.
We break down the two last big climbs, the Cat 2 Col Des Borders and then the Hors Cat Col d'Aubisque. We look at the Strava times from these two climbs and we take 70% of this time into our workout. The Col Des Borders has a PB of 21min on this climb and the Col d'Aubisque has a PB of 48min set by Robert Gesink.
You are the climber today going for the stage win. This means going deep at the bottom of the Aubisque and then holding the power over the long hill before a big effort at the top.
The finish is on the flat so you have a short recovery before a fast finish to go for the stage win on the last mountain stage.
