Tour de France re-route confirmation – Stage 20 : Modane – L’Alpe d’Huez… via the Croix de Fer

Le Tour officially announced today what we expected yesterday, the re-route of Stage 20 Modane to Alpe d Huez.

The start in Modane Valfréjus and arrival at Alpe d’Huez are maintained, as is the distance at 110.5km.

“The Stage remains 110.5km, and will leave Modane at 1.15 pm as was scheduled, then will head north after traversing Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne. The col du Galibier pass will no longer be part of the 2015 edition, however the peloton will climb the col de la Croix de Fer pass a second time, attacked from a different slope than the day before on stage 19. The riders will then plunge down into the Oisans Valley and find themselves in Bourg-d’Oisans (km 94. 5) and re-join the original itinerary, before beginning the climb to Alpe d’Huez. ”

Full details and profiles at the official Tour de France website.

Due to a couple of cancellations we do have some Tour de France accommodation available, contact us for more information.
