Le Tour 2016 – Stage 18

Tour de FranceSallanches to Megève

Distance: 17 kilometers.

An uphill time trial – how evil can they get? About 4 kilometers of level road at the start, then climbing for over 10 kilometers, before a slight downhill to the finish.

Chris Froome showed the form that keeps him in the Yellow Jersey by winning the stage and increasing his lead by over a minute. It is going to take a lot of hard work and luck to make up time on Froome in the remaining stages.
