Some say the Alps is where the Tour is won. Mountains stages are very hard on riders as steep roads require a higher cadence – not to mention the low-oxygen conditions. Such parameters make it the perfect place for riders to attack and put on a show for the crowd. On July 26th, the riders will cycle through Aussois, then face the mythical Col de la Madeleine and Col de l’Iseran to finally cross the finish line in Tignes in the afternoon.
