July 17th - Stage 2 - Col de l'Iseran

Stage 2 will be another good test. With almost 8,000 ft of climbing it won't be an easy day, but it never gets quite as steep as the Col de Romme. The Col de l'Iseran is one of cycling's most legendary climbs. At over 9,000 ft it's the highest paved pass in all of France. The additional climb up to Mont Cenis will take us to the Italian border and add a few more miles for good measure.
