Win a Prologue T-shirt

    Albertville plays host to the start of today’s stage. It’s a regular on the Tour schedule but the route succeeding it is not. It’s technical, and confusing for riders. There’s lots of changes in direction, fast descents and tricky climbs. Col de la Forclaz, Montée de Bisanne, Col des Saisies; there’s plenty of opportunities on

      The only obstacle riders will contend with is gravity as they are tested by today’s mountain time trial. First there’s the steep hairpins of the Côte de Domancy. Riders are rewarded with a little rest bite ready for the drag up to the Côte des Chozeaux. It’s not an uphill finish today. There’s a 2km

        After Côte de Saanenmöser and Col des Mosses riders hit the familiar climb of Col de la Forclaz. Col de la Forclaz has featured often in this Swiss part of the race.

            In homage to the locals – who regularly partake in the ritual of climbing the Grand Colombier from four different ascents in one day – the Tour will today climb this mountain twice.

              Riders head along the Rhône Valley into the face of the prevailing wind. Usually we’d call a bunch sprint in these conditions as riders shelter in the peloton. But you saw the chaos Sagan and Froome caused on the windy last 10km into Montpelier earlier in the tour. Will the Ettix-Quickstep train finally be rewarded with a

Chris Froome has shown he’s a Jack-of-all-trades at
