2 days, 2 Alpine Stages, 295 km

For the first time since the 2014 edition, the 3,383 km of the 2021 Tour de France, divided into 21 stages, will only include 2 stages in the Alps: 8 and 9.

On Saturday the 3rd of July, 184 cyclists of the Tour de France will ride 150.8 km from Oyonnax towards Le Grand-Bornand, a family destination loved by MGM Constructeur. The "Grand Bo" as the locals say, is one of the most popular resorts and villages in Haute-Savoie, as much for its privileged environment, its traditional village, its Chinaillon resort, its numerous activities and events in winter as in summer, and its ideal location 45 minutes from Annecy and its lake, and 1 hour from Geneva. There is no doubt that the Bornandins and tourists will give a warm welcome to the cyclists!

The following day, Sunday 4th July, the 23 teams will head up to the Haute-Savoie and Savoie: 144.9 km between Cluses and Tignes, one of the 3 finishes of the Tour de France at high altitude this year, with a final climb of 21 km at 5.6%. The Savoyard resort is famous worldwide for its dynamism and enjoys an exceptional location within the Vanoise Massif. Its south-facing aspect ensures optimal sunshine and preserved nature. For sure, this stage will provide magnificent images for TV audiences, and a good amount of adrenaline, motivation and wonder for the lucky ones who will be able to accompany the racers along the route, and to the finish line in Tignes!
