Equal to the first stage we start this Challenge with a real ‘Spring Classics’ ride in Belgium where you have to conquer the iconic Muur van Geraardsbergen. Thereafter we’re heading to stage 6 towards the most well-known and feared climbs of the Voges: la Plance des Belles Filles. A steep climb of 7 kilometres with a maximum slope of 20,5%. In the second week of Le Tour  the pros are going to fight for the yellow jersey in the Pyrenees. Here they have to climb among others the Col de Peyresourde and the legendary Col du Tourmalet, and so do you of course. Hardly recovered from this effort, we move over to the final week of this Grand Tour: the Alpes. Just like the pro riders in stage 18, you are treated with some impressive climbs like the heavy Col d’Izoard and the Col du Galibier. And if this wasn’t enough, we then go up to the stunning climb of Col de I’Iseran on the edge of the luxury ski resort of Val- d’Isere. The final spectacular mountain stage of this year’s Tour de France has two steep and long climbs in it and guess what? We’ve got them as well for you! Prepare yourself for the Cormet the Roseland and the very long climb to Val Thorens. Bon voyage!
