Tour de France Director Christian Prudhomme said “Although the distance for this stage seems reasonable, it would be a mistake to think that the 32nd edition of L’Étape du Tour de France will be less difficult than those that have taken place in the Alps, in particular.
“With four ascensions and total climbing of 4,600 m, with descents that require maximum care and concentration and with few moments of respite, the participants will have to be well prepared and especially careful at managing their effort. Good luck to them over the eight months of preparation before the big day.”
