Stage 8Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc / Modane Valfréjus

Start 13h05 (Local time)
  • Chris Froome wins the Dauphiné for the second time

    Just like two years ago before he claimed his first victory in the Tour de France, Chris Froome put the Critérium du Dauphiné on his record book. He did it in a very different way this time around. In 2013, the individual time trial gave him an advantage he defended in the mountains. This year, he had to make up for the time lost in the team time trial and the rainy stage 5 to the Vercors where Vincenzo Nibali put him into trouble. But Froome never gave up. Only in the very last...

Tourist attractions

Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc

In June, the cycling season reaches its peak for both road bikers and mountain bikers. Gentle slopes or technical descents? Anything is possible, with one common denominator, unobstructed views of Mont Blanc. Our nature trails can be used for trail running or family walks with magnificent routes winding gently across the mountainside. Experienced walkers on the Tour du Mont Blanc will particularly enjoy their time in Miage, while younger walkers can be introduced to the sport on easier routes. Maybe they'll go on to become mountaineers and join the ranks of the Guides de Saint-Gervais to scale Mont Blanc and other summits. After this breath of fresh air, the day continues ... The Saint-Gervais thermal baths have a secret to ensure you finish the day in style. You will feel fighting fit for the rest of your stay, allowing you to discover the rest of our activities.

Modane Valfréjus

Modane, a mountain and border town, is a gateway from Savoie into Italy, the Haute-Maurienne and the Hautes-Alpes valleys. Its history, architecture and the names of some of its inhabitants reflect the proximity of Italy. The town (pop. 4,000), is located between the Thabor and Vanoise mountain ranges, stands at 1,054 metres above sea level, and is surrounded by nine peaks of over 3,000 metres. The ibex, marmots and the town's mountain character remind us that we are in the very heart of the Alpine valleys of Savoie. Valfréjus is Modane's ski resort: it has all the facilities of an ultra-modern ski resort and is particularly well integrated into its natural surroundings in among the fir trees and larches. It is a reasonably-sized resort (7,000 beds) where everything is within walking distance. The ski lifts are all very new (less than 5 years old) and the 70km of runs enjoy exceptional snow cover. Valfréjus is part of the Eski-Mo ski area, grouping together 5 ski resorts that together offer more than 330 kilometres of runs.
