Stage 1Ugine / Albertville

Start 11h35 (Local time)
  • Peter Kennaugh showcases pursuiters' style

    British champion Peter Kennaugh made Team Sky shine in a way and a day they weren't expected to do so, as he rode away from a front group to anticipate the bunch sprint in a pursuiter's style, which is one of the most beautiful cycling gestures. In a thrilling finale, hot favorites Sacha Modolo (Lampre-Merida) and Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) could only realize the damage was done by the reigning Olympic champion for team pursuit.

Tourist attractions

Ugine

With its outstanding location in the heart of the mountain valleys, Albertville has a unique geographical advantage.

The town backs on to the Bauges and Beaufortain mountain ranges and stands at the gateway to the Arly, Combe, Savoie and Tarentaise valleys, a setting waiting to be discovered that lives up to the splendor of its Olympic past.  Sport and culture abound here and the town holds the coveted official “bicycling touring town” and “Town of Art and History” labels. Albertville appeals to outdoor and nature enthusiasts as well as those interested in art and heritage. Its location has made it a popular centre for tourists and is an ideal base camp for bicycle tourists pedalling along the family bike trails or up the great Alpine mountain passes (Madeleine, Aravis, Iseran, and Cornet de Roseland).  The walled medieval city of Conflans is an historical gem that overlooks Albertville and offers a panoramic view over the town that had the privilege of hosting the 16th Winter Olympics in 1992. Albertville has not looked back since:  the Winter Olympics Visitors' Centre, its art and history museum, the dome theatre, the multimedia library and cinemas all make for a buzzing town centre, in close proximity to the Place de l'Europe and its many shops and restaurants.  The sports facilities here also have pride of place thanks to the incomparable Olympic village with its Olympic Hall, which is currently being renovated, and is a venue for many top sporting events:  the Tour de France, the Etape du Tour, the Mountain Bike World cup, the 2017 World Handball Championships, etc. From top sporting events to the creation of the new national team ski and snowboard training centre, Albertville is an attractive town in many ways and a place for all seasons and all tastes – whether you prefer city life, cultural or sporting activities.
