Tour de France 2009 Stage 6 Gérone – Barcelone 181.5km
After Monaco and Marseille, the 2009 Tour visits a third ‘great beacon’ of the Mediterranean, Barcelona. The Spanish capital of Catalonia, the southernmost destination in Tour history, has hosted the Tour de France twice in the past. This year, the peloton will come from Girona, a small Spanish town which became famous in the cycling community when Lance Armstrong made it his Spanish home. The uphill finish at the Montjuic mountain might not see a straight forward sprinters finish.
