The eleventh stage of the Tour de France resulted in an impressive battle in the heart of the Alps, over the Col du Télégraphe, the Col du Galibier and a finish on top of the Col du Granon at the end of 151 extremely intense kilometers.
The GC favorites attacked before the top of the Télégraphe, which preceded the Galibier. Despite a difficult moment, Louis Meintjes never gave up and followed closely behind the yellow jersey group before the top of the Galibier, the highest point of this 109th edition.
The favorites accelerated once more before diving towards the Col du Granon, where the stage finished in a man to man fight. Louis Meintjes finished 21st, climbing again in the general classification. He is now sixteenth after this eleventh stage.
