Tour de France 2022 Route stage 10: Morzine - Megève

Tour de France 2022Tuesday 12 July - At 148 kilometres, stage 10 at Le Tour is a relatively short race, but it's a tough one. The riders get a first taste of the Alps on the roads between Morzine and Megève, while the finale is a long and gradual climb to the line.

Morzine – Megève, it has a familiar ring to it – and rightly so. Six years ago the Tour de France saw a stage travelling in the opposite direction. It was a mountain stage with four cols and Ion Izagirre turned out on top in Morzine.

Two days prior Megève hosted the finish of a climbing time trial. Chris Froome won the stage 21 seconds ahead of Tom Dumoulin, thus cementing his overall race lead, which eventually led to the third of his four Tour de France triumphs.

The riders tackle a hilly route on the roads from Morzine and Megève. The finale is a 19.2 kilometres climb at 4.1%. It’s a steady affair with the steepest kilometre, at 7.1%, at the end.
