Tour de France 2022 Route stage 8: Dole - Lausanne

Tour de France 2022Saturday 9 Juli - The 8th stage of Le Tour travels from Dole to Lausanne. So, the race starts in France and finishes in Switzerland, while the route adds up 184 kilometres. Finale for punchers!

Dole is the place where Louis Pasteur, developer of the first vaccines, was born two hundred years ago. The town hosted two starts of a Tour de France stage until now. The last time was in 2017. The race went to Station des Rouses, where Lilian Calmejane took the spoils.

Lausanne saw the first Tour de France stage finish in 1948 with a Gino Bartali triumph. The Swiss town hosted other finishes in 1949 (Vincenzo Rovello win), in 1952 (Walter Diggelmann win), in 1978 (Gerrie Knetemann win), and in 2000 (Erik Dekker win).

The 2022 edition will see a puchy finale with 1 kilometre at 9.5% just before the finish line.
