Bicycling Magazine Tour de France 2010: Stage 16 - Bagnères-de-Luchon to Pau (July 20) 

On a 199.5km day that includes classic climbs like the Tourmalet and the Aubisque, stage 16 is certainly the Queen stage in the Pyrenees this year. But with the final Aubisque climb over 60 kilometers from the finish in Pau, it is not necessarily a stage for the pure climbers.

Last year French rider Pierrick Fedrigo won a similar stage to Tarbes and it is a perfect stage for a inconsistent climber like Frenchman David Moncoutie, who will be buried in the overall standings at this point in the race and can thus, easily join an early breakaway, that on this day, has a good chance to make it back to Pau ahead of the yellow jersey.
