Stage city for the 2nd time

Sous-préfecture of Isère (38)

8 050 inhabitants (Turripinois)

In 1983, the start of a stage heading to l’Alpe d’Huez was given in La Tour-du-Pin. It was one of the rare days when the peloton rode without a Yellow Jersey after the leader of the event Pascal Simon was forced to abandon after fracturing a scapula that had made him suffer for close to a week. In the Isère resort, Laurent Fignon conquered the Yellow Jersey just after the stage victory of Peter Winnen. More recently, in 2017, the city hosted the start of a time-trial during the Critérium du Dauphiné, won in Bourgoin-Jallieu by Richie Porte.
