Day 1: La Léchère les Bains – Valloire

Departing from the spa town of La Léchère les Bains, riders will quickly find themselves heading up the mighty Col de la Madelaine. From the summit, riders will have a choice of two routes to the finish line; head directly to the town of Saint-Michel-du-Maurienne to start the ascent of the Col du Telegraphe, or get there via a detour up the spectacular 18 hairpins in 2.5km of Les Lacets du Montvernier. From the summit of Telegraphe, riders on both routes can enjoy the view as they descend to the ski town of Valloire and the first rest stop.
