Just look at that

This is what the riders face in today's stage from Gap to Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. Although the Col du Glandon is officially 21.7kms long, the riders will be climbing on and off for 47 kilometres with some brutal sections to cover.

Watching Stage 17 yesterday, you could see that many of the riders were suffering so what condition they will be in after today we shall see. By Saturday and the ascent of Alp d'Huez they will all be looking forward to a leisurely ride into Paris.
