 Before the alpine sequence of the Tour, the climbers will enjoy a relative break on the road to Berne that goes through the numerous valleys of the Jura area.The pure sprinters shouldn't hope for too much:indeed the hill they'll have to climb in the urban final of the stage could prevent the biggest babies from fighting for victory!

The little common of the Jura area is however a capital: the capital of toys. Its industry has benefited of several industrial relocations while visitors mainly come in numbers to discover the museum of toys and its collection of 20,000 objects coming from around the world. The start could inspire a rider with a rather playful spirit: Alexis Vuillermoz, winner in 2015 at Mûr de Bretagne and originally from the neighboring city of Saint-Claude.
