2022 year Tour de France moves into Castelnau-Magnoac with the sprinters eyeing stage 19 glory with only two category four climbs to contend with.

The day ends with Kahor, which is a good sign for Jonas Wingegard, as the Danish royal family owns Cayx Castle in this town. Jumbo-Visma’s star broke Thaddeus Pagakar at stage 18 to get a memorable victory and almost wrapped up the battle for the yellow jersey after a sensational Tour.

Pogacar is unlikely to have a chance to damage Wingegard here, though who would rule out a few attacks to do something and finally push his opponent out. If the Dane is awake on the job, any attack is unlikely to succeed on such a flat route.

The potential for a crosswind could spark hope for those willing to bide their time and be late. Jasper Philipsen is the favorite here, but who can count on the incredible Wout van Aert, while Fabio Jacobsen and Caleb Ewen are also in contention after battling through the Alps and Pyrenees for their shot at the stage and the final in Paris on Sunday.
