Tour de France 2017 – L’Etape du Tour – Briançon to Izoard – 180km / 3,400m

L’Etape du Tour is always a classic of an event but for 2017 the parcours is going to provide a really tough challenge.  At almost 180km in length the route begins with a fairly relaxed first 120km taking in a scenic tour of Lac de Serre-Ponçon before tackling the Col de Vars and a tough summit finish of the southern slopes of the Col d’Izoard.  Expect a few hours of crazy huge pelotons until the climbing properly gets underway!
