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.

Km 35.5: Côte de Corlier: 6.4 km climb @ 5.3 % grade / 3rd Cat.
Km 122.5: Côte de Cruseilles: 7.1 km climb @ 4.4 % grade / 3rd Cat.
Km 134: Côte Peguin: 4.3 km climb @ 4.1 % grade / 4th Cat.
Km 183: Col de la Colombière: 16.0 km climb @ 6.8 % grade / 1st Cat.

Km 16.5: Pont d'Ain
Km 111.5: Anglefort
