Stage 11 of the 2016 Tour is a flat stage for the sprinters, over 162.5km from Carcassonne to Montpellier. Setting off from Carcassonne, it goes east, between the Canal du Midi and the Mediterranean to the south, and the Montagne Noire to the north. This is wine country, and much of the race is on small roads through vineyards, visiting villages such as Saint-Chinian and Murviel-lès-Béziers. There are two Category 4 climbs early in the stage, the Côte de Minerve and the Côte de Villespassans; the intermediate sprint is at Pézenas. It's likely to be a bunch sprint to the finish line at the Altrad Stadium in Montpellier. Read about Stage 11, Tour de France 2016.
