A snowboarding mecca in the winter, the Pyrenean resort is transformed each summer into a location of choice for the world’s longboarding elite. On the Tour’s first finish here in 2012, Alejandro Valverde surprised the favourites with 35-kilometre solo raid that ended in victory. The following year, another Alexandre, Geniez, pulled off a similar feat by winning at Peyragudes on a stage of... the Vuelta! And in 2017, Romain Bardet showed himself to be the strongest on the altiport’s formidable slopes, while Chris Froome, after ceding the yellow jersey at Cambrai in 2015 to Tony Martin, gave it up for the second time in his career to Fabio Aru.
