Nimes > Nimes
Stage 16 – 177 km – Flat
Bunched sprint on arrival possible.
A loop within a loop
Both the departure and the arrival are in Nimes, the capital of the Gard department, twice the fun for Nimes spectators!
Stage 16 of the 2019 Tour de France will be held the day after a rest day. The day’s loop will be entirely taking place in the Gard department and the peloton will have the very special privilege of riding on the Pont du Gard. The escapees that will show up on the famous Roman viaduct should be under the careful scrutiny of the bunch. A bunched sprint in Nimes is likely.
The proposed route for Stage 16 of the 2019 Tour de France:
A 177 km route proposed for Stage 16 of the Tour de France 2019:
From Saint-Bonnet-du-Gard to Remoulins, Castillon-du-Gard, via Valliguières, Pouzilhac and Uzès and, of course, Nimes at both the start and finish—eight villages in the Destination Pays d’Uzès Pont du Gard will be crossed during this stage.
The Destination Pays d’Uzès Pont du Gard will be in the spotlight like never before!
The route communicated below is subject to slight modifications between now and the start of the stage.
To be noted:
The start will take place at the Nimes Arena/Square du 11 Novembre with a passage of the Tour caravan scheduled for 11:20 a.m., the riders start at 1:20 pm.

During the July 23th, the Pont du Gard will already be animated by the departmental animation system located on the right bank. Access to the reserved parking lot will already be in place. Access to the Pont du Gard site will be possible by car, access roads closed from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.
