Tour de France 2020 :

The queen stage of the Alps promises to be on the highest summit of this 107th edition of the Tour de France, the unprecedented Col de la Loze.

This is the great attraction of this Tour de France: an unprecedented finish on the Col de la Lozère, the highest cycling pass in Europe. The legs will already be heavy for this arrival in Savoie, but it will still be necessary to keep some under the pedal to first face the mythical Col de la Madeleine, and its irregular climb of nearly 17 kilometers. Before the final climb to more than 2,300 meters above sea level, with nearly 22 markers with more than 7.8% average to follow. The tarred ski slope in the final will offer percentages over 20%, which will allow pure climbers to put the general classification in their pocket. Or to catch up for a stage victory, if the yellow jersey is already far away. This pass will in any case be the most important of this last week of competition.
