Lyon > Grand Colombier - 15th stage of the Tour de France 2020

Lyon > Grand Colombier - 15th stage of the Tour de France 2020

The stage 15 of the Tour de France 2020 between Lyon and Grand Colombier is now history with a new climbing record by Tadej Pogacar and big fights between the GC leaders. Now it’s your turn to follow the wheels of the best riders in the world in one of the toughest Grand Tour stage ever done.

 

On the eve of the second rest day, the riders have entered Bugey from the South, a stone’s throw from the Glandieu waterfall, before successively passing over the towns of Prémeyzel, Belley, Virieu-le-Grand, Artemare before tackling the brutal slopes of the Grand Colombier and Col de la Biche.

Riders had a lot to deal with at first the ascent of the Montée de la Selle de Fromentel and its terrible slopes at 22% above Virieu-le-Petit. They have descended to Les Bordèzes in Lochieu, then climbed the Col de la Biche from Brénaz. From the top of the difficult Col de la Biche, the Tour have gone down to the Rhône river valley in Corbonod, Anglefort and then Culoz, from where the final ascent have ridden the sumptuous hairpins of Le Grand Colombier located a few kilometres from the finish line summit.

46 minutes 31 seconds ! That’s the new record set by the stage winner Tadej Pogacar to get to the top (23.0 km/h average). He benefited from Wout Van Aert and other Jumbo Visma riders pace to get to the top that fast.
