The only previous Tour finish in Megève was in 2016, for a time trial that was dominated by Chris Froome, who was on his way to his third title. The resort has also been a regular haunt for the Critérium du Dauphiné peloton, notably for two finishes over an eventful final weekend in 2020. Young Lennard Kamnä and Sepp Kuss were the stage victors, while the general classification was thrown wide open by the crash-related withdrawal of leader Primoz Roglic, which allowed Colombian Dani Martinez to add his name to the race’s palmarès.
