Route of the stage 9 of the tour

The first week will end with a brutal stage that can move the general classification... if Tadej Pogacar's rivals want it. The roughness of the mountains will shake the riders, who in the first 20 kilometers will have just climbed the second category Côte de Domancy and after the intermediate sprint in Praz-Sur-Arly, come four more passes: the first category Col des Saisies, the Col du Pré, out of category, then the climb to the second category Cormet de Roselend and the first category Montée de Tignes, 1.9 kilometers from the finish line.
