Stage 17 - Pau to Tourmalet - 174km
The comment of Christian Prudhomme
The Tourmalet is the icon of the Pyrenees and the mountain top finish, situated in the Hautes-Pyrenees, will be the high spot of the 2010 Tour. It will be climbed on its steepest side uphill from Barèges following the ascension of the Marie-Blanque and Soulor passes. After the rest day climbing legs may be a little “rusty”. Take heed!
