Now known as a major place of biathlon, Le Grand-Bornand was previously among the Alps classics on the Tour. It highlighted some great moments like the solo victory of Linus Gerdemann who captured the Yellow Jersey there in 2007, or the triumph of Rui Costa, his second success of the 2013 edition, just a few weeks before becoming the first ever Portuguese World Champion. The last stage that ended in the Aravis resort in 2018 saw the master piece of a future World Champion, Julian Alaphilippe who was to capture his first Tour stage victory after dropping all his breakaway companions.
