So, the not so well kept rumours, were true and the Tour visits Alpe d Huez for a mountain top finish again in 2018, hurrah. After setting out from Bourg-Saint-Maurice a route over the mountains and 175 km brings the riders to the finish on Alpe d Huez.
But it’s not over then, the start in Bourg d Oisans on the 20 July means two days of the race, as the riders head off from the village towards Valance.
19 juillet : 12e étape Bourg-Saint-Maurice – Alpe d’Huez, 175 km
20 juillet : 13e étape Bourg-d’Oisans – Valence, 169 km
For the Tour de France we have a self guided stay at the More Than 21 Bends B&B in the heart of Bourg d Oisans, arriving Monday 16th (pm) and departing Friday 20th (pm), the perfect place to soak in the atmosphere and enjoy some amazing riding.
