      Stage 11: Pau to Cauterets – Vallée de Saint-Savin 167 Km

       

      The riders had to approach this high mountain first stage with a really high temperature.  The temperature was 36° at the beginning of Tourmalet climb making the tough climb harder and harder. Armindo Fonseca and Brice Feillu (picture below) stayed in the main group. On the other side, Eduardo Sepulveda tried to follow the high rhythm given by the Yellow Jersey. At the end of the stage, Eduardo finished at 8’ minutes from the winner, but he gained 2 positions in the general standing, jumping to 24th.
