Stage 17, Tour de France 2019: the route

Stage 17 of the 2019 Tour de France takes the race to the Alps. It's fairly flat at first, while it's still in the Rhone Valley. After the intermediate sprint at Vaison-la-Romaine, the road rises. The critical point should be the Col de la Sentinelle, with the top 8.5km before the finish. The organisers see this as a breakaway day.
