Tourist attractions

Grenoble

The city is deeply linked to three pillars of the history of cycling. First of all because it is frequently on the map of the Tour de France since 1905. Grenoble also remains the last town in France to organise a prestigious Grenoble Four-Day race in its velodrome. Finally, it is almost systematically a host to the Criterium du Dauphiné. For its last edition, in 2013, one of the Tour's most exciting attackers, Thomas Voeckler, had triumphed there, just in front of the Stade des Alpes.

Risoul

The Hautes-Alpes resort proved its value when crowning Christopher Froome during the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 and hosting the young guns of the 2010 Tour de l'Avenir. On two occasions, a normal stage and then an uphill time-trial, its verdict was to be the same with two victories for Nairo Quintana in front of Andrew Talansky, the winner and his runner-up of the youth classification at the last Tour de France.
