Back in the 2000s, four stages of the Tour started from the city where top triathletes gather every year for the Embrunman. A different scenario unfolded every time, leading to victories by Simon Gerrans in Prato Nevoso (2008), Carlos Sastre on the Alpe d’Huez (2008), Christopher Froome in a time trial in Chorges (2013) and, finally, Edvald Boasson Hagen in Salon-de-Provence in 2017.
