A big day on the Tour

 So far the Tour de France has proved to be exciting with twists and turns in the fortunes of the favourites. It has also taken us through some beautiful countryside with more climbing than I believe is usual. 

Today could well be a big day as the riders leave Lyon and head to a finish on the Grand Colombier. 

Although the Grand Colombier has featured many times in the Tour, this is the first time that a stage will finish at the top. 

Before the riders reach the final climb though, they have 98kms of flat countryside to cover. They also have a couple of mountain to tackle the first of which has a 3km section at 22%. .
