Stage 17 - Thursday, July 20: Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne - Morzine, 199 km

The final act in the 2006 Tour's Alpine Trilogy is the longest yet at almost 200km has two category one, one category two and a category three climb, with a final ascent of the steep, difficult Beyond Category Col de Joux-Plane where Lance Armstrong cracked big time in 2000, it's a wild plunge to finish in Morzine. An early break can get an advantage on Stage 17, but can they hold it all the way to Morzine?
