C. Prudhomme's comment

Climbers will have an opportunity to express their talent in the high mountains of this first big Alpine stage where they’ll be above 2000 metres in altitude in three different locations… which is extremely rare on a stage for the Tour de France. For the occasion, the day will include climbs up Vars, the Izoard and the Galibier!
