Stage 8 - Station Les Rousses to Morzine Avoriaz - 189km
The comment of Christian Prudhomme
From the Jura to the Alps… From the start, and on the previous day in particular, the pack has encountered some steep challenges, but this is the first real contact with high mountain peaks. Rarely climbed - twice only - the Ramaz pass sits forty kilometres from the high altitude finish in Avoriaz, which was last visited by the Tour sixteen years ago.
