Tour de France 2018 : 10th stage Annecy/Le Grand-Bornand
Jul 17, 2018
The cyclists will leave Annecy to go around the lake, then challenge 4 Haut-Savoyard passes for a 159 km course. The highlight of the race will surely be the climb of Glières and crossing the Plateau for 2 km on an unpaved road.
After a one day rest, this step should be an important day of the 105th edition of the “Grande Boucle” with it’s first passage ever on the Plateau des Glières. The first day in the Alps should offer a challenge between the best riders and also pay tribute to the the Resistance.
Before joining the Grand-Bornand, the cyclists will have to climb the Col de la Croix Fry, followed by the climb to the Plateau des Glières, the Col de Romme and finally the Col de la Colombière before arriving at the descent of Grand-Bornand.
