To whet your appetite even more, here are some extra details of the 3 stages passing through our neck of the woods this year…
Stage 18 – Sallanches > Megève
Sallanches to Megeve Time trial – one for the climbers amongst the ‘rouleurs’ or the best ‘rouleurs’ amongst the climbers, this atypical mountain stage could shake up the GC going into the last two big mountain days.
Stage 19 – Albertville > Saint-Gervais
Albertville to Saint Gervais – a big day in the mountains crossing two different Forclaz on the way. The magnificent views of Mont Blanc won’t ease the pain of 6 challenging climbs, not least the 12.4km HC climb up the Bisanne.
Stage 20 – Megève > Morzine
Megeve to Morzine – arguably this year’s queen stage saved for the last day, taking in four of the northern Alps’ most iconic climbs, with the day getting progressively harder culminating in the brutal Joux Plane – the whole Tour could be decided on the very last day!
