Before the winter settled in Annecy, Mavic took one of the last chances to get up to the mountains for a recon of the 2018 Etape du Tour, which is also stage 10 of the Tour de France.

This stage includes the 2km stretch of gravel up the Plateau de Glières, and finishes just down the road from us in Le Grand Bornand, after passing right by Bike Weekender HQ here at the Aravis Lodge.
