Tour de France 2013: An Alpine ITT for climbing specialists

Cyclingnews has been able to accompany Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme a few days ago on his recce of the Alpine stages of the 100th edition. Stage 17 from Embrun to Chorges is definitely worth a visit for the protagonists - and the fans as well due to the beauty of the landscape. It's a 32km individual time trial that will feature two grueling climbs of six kilometers each. Former mountain bikers will love it.
