Tour Tidbit du Jour - 7/23/2015

The Category 2 climb of Lacets de Montvernier has never been ridden in the Tour before today's Stage 18. The 3.4 km ascent features 18 hairpin turns and, a rarity for this Grand Tour, hardly any fans lining the route because of the narrowness of the road.

Here's another look at the climb to gauge its scale and how the road was cut into the side of the mountain.
