We will travel to watch the riders on Col d’Iseran, the biggest climb of the tour and the highest paved pass of the Alps at 2,770m. We will travel up to one of the mountain villages for lunch before welcoming the passage of the tour.

Col d’Iseran

The race passes over it highest point in the race today – approaching 3,000m. With a summit finish above 2,000m, the peloton will have climbed 5 mountains over 2,000m in two days. I think there’ll be a few riders spending much of their off season at altitude.

This morning, we’ll travel to watch the riders on Col d’Iseran, the biggest climb of the tour and the highest paved pass of the Alps at 2,770m. We’ll travel up to one of the mountain villages for lunch before welcoming the passage of the tour. If you’re feeling a little energetic, take a short walk to discover the beautiful wild flowers and waterfalls from glacial melt. Once the final riders pass, we’ll watch the final moments on television and travel back to our hotel, savouring the buzz of seeing the tour on a big mountain.

 

TODAY IN THE RACE
Stage 19: Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Tignes, Mountain, 123 km

Riders reach the highest point of the tour on Col d’Iseran (2,770m) in today’s short, but dynamic stage. It will only be the second time that the Tour has climbed up this tougher southern side. We would expect the attacks to launch to the highest point of the tour. Time gaps will eventuate at the summit finish to the ski village in Tignes.
