When: Thursday, July 12
Where: Chablis-Autun
Length: 182.5km

DESCRIPTION
After five days of rolling plains, the Tour hits the hills of Burgundy for a tricky stage from Chablis to Autun. Between the two towns there is a ridge of significant proportions.

This is the most hilly of the non-mountain stages, with eight classified climbs, including the 867-metre second category climb to Haut Folin.

The sprinters will have to sit this one out. This is likely to be the most animated stage at this point of the Tour, favouring a last-minute escape and will most likely contribute to who wears the yellow jersey.
