Returning to Finisterre after the day of rest. The riders start from Arles and cross Provence and Occitania for one of the most enjoyable stages of the 2019 Gibraltar Race. Here is the video of stage 8.
Stage 8 has also been completed and the caravan is now preparing to attack the Iberian Peninsula.
The stage from Arles to Carcassonne was characterized by pleasant off-road sections of medium complexity with some points a little more challenging due to slopes and loose stones, and was overall one of the most enjoyable stages according to all participants, many of them enthusiastic about the route, its scents and the landscape. They demonstrated this with wide smiles at the end of the day when they admitted that they were bewitched by the charm of Provence and Occitania.
