Tour de France 2024 Stage 10 Preview

After a gravel-filled Stage 9 at the Tour de France 2024, the riders get the chance to enjoy a well-earned rest day.

Racing will resume Tuesday with a flat Stage 10, and while it doesn't include any challenging gravel or difficult climbs, it's possible wind could be a factor.

Two-time Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar still leads the 111th edition of the race and will bring a 33-second advantage over event first-timer Remco Evenepoel into Stage 10. 

Two-time defending champion Jonas Vingegaard is third and followed by Primoz Roglic and Juan Ayuso.

The  top of the General Classification saw no change Sunday, with France's Anthony Turgis coming out on top of the unprecedented and dusty ninth stage, which included more than 30 kilometers of gravel across 14 sections.

FloBikes coverage of Stage 10 will begin Tuesday at 5:55 a.m. Eastern and is expected to conclude around 12:05 p.m. EDT.

Here’s what to know about Stage 10 of the Tour de France:

FloBikes and the FloSports app are home to race highlights, stage breakdowns and more breaking news. 

Stage 10 Tour de France 2024

Stage 10 of the Tour de France 2024 will take the riders on a relatively flat ride through the Sologne forest, while wind, at times, may create some challenges, just as it did on a similar route a decade ago.

This year's 187.3-kilometer journey will begin in Orleans and finish in Saint-Amand-Montrond, and the terrain will not exceed 1,000 meters of elevation at any point.

Orleans has hosted the Tour de France 12 times, though the last time a stage started there was 2001 (Stage 19 of 20). It ended in Evry with a sprint victory earned by Erik Zabel.

With the 2024 journey to Saint-Amand-Montrond also flat, another sprint finish is expected. Among the sprints this year, Biniam Girmay and Mark Cavendish picked up wins and made history.

In winning Stage 3, Girmay became the first Black rider to win a stage of the TDF, and he won again in Stage 8. 

Cavendish won Stage 5 to become the winningest rider in TDF history, taking his record 36th stage victory. 

Saint-Amand-Montrond also is a familiar location for the TDF, and during a wind-affected run from Tours to Saint-Amand-Montrond in 2013 (Stage 13), it was Cavendish who crossed the finish line first. 

Can Cavendish do it again and add to his legacy at the TDF? Can the green jersey-wearing Girmay be stopped in 2024? Will the Saint-Amand-Montrond-born Julian Alaphilippe make an appearance?

Again, bonus seconds will be awarded to the first three riders across the line - 10, 6 and 4.
