Albertville / Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc 146KM

 An amazing scenery: the Mont Blanc will be ever present all along the day.It'll also be the opportunity to discover two mountain passes of La Forclaz which will make it a total of three with the swiss Forclaz.Will then follow, the brand new climb up the Mont Bisanne which will hurt the legs of many before the final climb to Le Bettex through the tough paths up the Côte des Amerands.

The Tour has often gone through Albertville to access the Tarentaise and Beaufortain valleys but it rarely stopped there. The riders had more opportunities to discover the Olympic city during the Critérium du Dauphiné, including last year for the opening stage of the 2015 edition won by Peter Kennaugh. On the Tour, the last start from Albertville was given in 2012 for a short stage heading to La Toussuire and conquered in style by Pierre Rolland.
