• Stage 16 brings the Tour out of its second day of rest with the first of three days in the Alps, a 164-kilometer stage with five classified climbs and an uphill finish in Villard de Lans.
• The real action should be on the Category 1 Montée Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte, which climbs from the valley outside of Grenoble to a ridge along the eastern edge of the Vercors plateau. The road then descends for about 18 km to the top of the plateau, before a category 3 climb to the finish line at Villard de Lans.
• This is the easiest of the three alpine stages of the last week, and should serve more as an appetizer than a main course, especially since a high altitude summit arrival is looming in Méribel the next day. . So we suspect another breakaway filled with talented climbers but out of competition to find success, as the GC du Tour contenders pick up the pace, reserving themselves for Wednesday’s showdown.
