“TOUR DE FRANCE CYCLE CITY” LABEL

Candidacy for the label is open to all cities that have hosted the Tour de France at least once since its creation in 1903.

THE COMMENTS OF CHRISTIAN PRUDHOMME - Stage 8

After 2009 and 2018, the finish at Le Grand-Bornand will once again be conditioned by the Romme – Colombière climbing sequence. But this time it’ll be preceded by the climb up to Mont-Saxonnex (5,7 km at 8,3%) first ascent towards the Plateau de Solaison, and will therefore offer a triple climb on a distance of over 20 kms at close to 9%. Of course it’ll be a day for the best climbers!
