Stage 15 - Tuesday, July 18: Gap - L'Alpe-d'Huez, 187 km

Phase Three of the 93rd Tour De France goes full bore with a massive stage through the dark heart of the Hautes Alpes into Isere. An early break of contenders teammates will get established on the Col d'Izoard, then it's up and over the Col du Lautaret, where the long descent will probably bring the race back together at the foot of l'Alpe d'Huez for a ding-dong battle up the final 14km to the legendary finish.
