Tour de France 2022 stage 19 preview: Route map and profile from Castelnau Magnoac to Cahors today

[ad_1]

The 2022 Tour de France moves into Castelnau-Magnoac with the sprinters eyeing up glory in Stage 19 with just two fourth-category climbs to contend with.

The day finishes in Cahors, which is a nice omen for Jonas Vingegaard, as the Danish royal family own the castle of Cayx in this town. The Jumbo-Visma star broke Tadej Pogacar during Stage 18 to claim a memorable victory and has all but wrapped up the battle for the yellow jersey after a sensational Tour.

There is unlikely to be any opportunity for Pogacar to hurt Vingegaard here, though who would rule out a few attacks in an effort to make something happen and finally dislodge his rival. Unless the Dane is sleeping on the job, any attack is unlikely to come off on what is such a flat route.

The potential for crosswinds could boost hopes for those ready to bide their time and strike late. Jasper Philipsen is the favourite here, but who can count out the incredible Wout van Aert, while Fabio Jakobsen and Caleb Ewan are also in the running after battling their way through the Alps and Pyrenees for their shot at the stage and the finale in Paris on Sunday.
