Tour de France

The famous, demanding hairpin climbs in the Alps have played a great part in the Tour de France over the years. With the mountains bringing a great spectacle and fantastic views, it's easy to see why people head to the Alps year after year to witness this fantastic event.

In previous years the Tour de France has passed through a number of resorts, including Morzine and Alpe d'Huez, finishing on the Champs-Élysées, Paris. In 2018 cyclists tackled the 21 bends leading up to Alpe d'Huez in the 12th stage of the competition. The 175km route finished in Alpe d'Huez on Thursday 19 July, with Geriant Thomas of Team Sky emerging victorious.

After the excitement of 2018 the route for 2019 will not pass through Alpe D'Huez.
