Stage 18 visits the roof of the Alps – with three massive climbs including the highest point in the 2011 Tour and the highest mountain top finish in Tour de France history.
A Col du Tourmalet mountain top finish? I must have died and gone to cycling heaven. Yes, it is the Queen stage of the 2010 Tour de France. Do not miss this.
Stage 8 will be the first Alpine stage in the 2010 Tour de France.
With five climbs and some of the steepest stretches in the entire Tour, this stage (along with Ventoux) will be the toughest test of the race.
It’s been over 40 years since these magnificent climbs last appeared in the Tour de France.
