94th Tour de France - ProT
France, July 7-29, 2007
Stage 7 - Saturday, July 14: Bourg-en-Bresse - Le-Grand-Bornand, 197.5km
By Tim Maloney, European Editor
After a week of racing at Le Tour 2007, the first mountain stage in the Alps will certainly upset the status quo and it will likely show who the real contenders for overall victory are. Saturday is France's national holiday and huge crowds should be lining the road.
Stage six starts out with an early climb up Côte de Corlier in the foothills of the Ain region, where key team riders will try to get out front early to help their team leaders on the decisive final 16-kilometre ascent of the Col de la Colombière before the descent to Le Grand-Bornand.
