Alpe d’Huez

The 21 hairpins of the Alpe are Le Cure’s spiritual home.  The Tour’s first visit to Alpe d’Huez was won by the legendary Fausto Coppi, since when the 13.8km, 8.1% climb – including a savage first 3km – has seen several epic stages, most notably in 1986 when Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond crossed arm in arm. Winners also include the infamous Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani and, most recently, Britain’s Geraint Thomas.

Including a double summit in 2019, Le Cure has climbed the Alpe 7 times and will return for our grand finale once again in 2022!
