Never lose sight of the Mont Blanc while riding
The Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps and the highest in Europe. It rises 4,808.7 m above sea level and is ranked 11th in the world in topographic prominence. Enjoy a “Tour du Mont Blanc” in the wheel of Fränk Schleck
The Mont Blanc region of the Alps is not particularly known for its road cycling compared to its Tour de France Counterparts such as Alpe d’Huez etc. But Saint Gervais and Megeve have just hosted the final two stages of the Critérium du Dauphiné and we can’t forget Chamonix. The Haute Savoie, Aosta and Valais resorts surrounding Mont Blanc have a lot of challenging and beautiful road cycling on offer!

We return to the Grand Bornand where Fränk was able to win the Queenstage of the tour de France 2009 beating Alberto Contador in 2nd place and Andy 3rd. The trio was able to drop all the other contenders like Lance Armstrong and Andreas Kloeden in the last ascent of the Col de la Colombière.

A magnificent step that will make us pass the Col des Foreclosures often taken by the Tour de France. Then heading to the Col du Joly with an arrival at the top facing Mont-Blanc, where we can practically touch the summit. The Col du Joly will certainly be in a few years the place of an arrival of the Tour de France.

For this last stage, we will ride and climb the famous Domancy climb where Bernard Hinault became world champion in 1980 on certainly one of the hardest race in the history of the World Championships.
