Between Lyon and Le Grand Colombier, the 15th stage of the Tour de France 2020 is back in Bugey.
The stage 15 of the future Tour de France 2020, 175 km long, will start on Sunday September 13 from Lyon.
On the eve of the second rest day, the riders will enter Bugey from the South, a stone's throw from the Glandieu waterfall, before successively passing over the towns of Prémeyzel, Belley, Virieu-le-Grand, Artemare before tackling the formidable slopes of the local climbs.
Riders will have a lot to deal with at first with the ascent of the Montée de la Selle de Fromentel and its terrible slopes at 22% above Virieu-le-Petit. They will descend to Les Bordèzes in Lochieu, then climb the Col de la Biche from Brénaz. From the top of La Biche, the Tour will go down to the Rhône valley in Corbonod, Anglefort and then Culoz, from where the final ascent will take the sumptuous hairpins of Le Grand Colombier located a few kilometres from the summit.
Sunday 13 September
Free of charge.
