Tour de France 2021 Route stage 10: Albertville - Valence
Tuesday 6 July - The Tour de France heads south in stage 10. The race sets off from Albertville to move through the valleys of the Isère and Rhône and finish in Valence. Flat route of 190.7 kilometres.
Virtually every year Albertville hosts a peloton of pro-riders. With the exception of Covid-19 year 2020 the Tour de France or Critérium du Dauphiné visited the town in the foothills of the Alps. Usually for a race into the high mountains, which is not the case in 2021.
In the contrary, the riders head in southwesterly direction to finish in Valence. The only KOM points are available on the Col de Couz, which is an extended viaduct of 7.4 kilometres at 2.8%. The rest of the route is flat with some Col de Couz’ish undulations here and there.
It’s the fourth time that the Tour de France finishes in Valence. The first occasion was 25 years ago (Chepe González win), but in recent years the love seems to grow stronger. André Greipel sprinted to triumph in 2015, while Peter Sagan took the spoils in 2018.
Charly Mottet was born in Valence. The victor in the 1988 Tour de Lombardy also won stages in all Grand Tours. Axel Domont is a currently active pro-cyclist who hails from Valence.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
