It was in the resort of Valloire that two-time world slalom champion Jean-Baptiste Grange established himself as one of the top skiers of his generation. In 1972, long before he was born, the first Tour finish to be held in the ski station ended with Yellow Jersey Eddy Merckx triumphant on a half-stage in which Luis Ocaña, suffering with a lung problem, continued to lose ground. A fourth title beckoned for the Belgian champion. In 2019, Nairo Quintana soloed to victory in Valloire.
