One of the wonders of the Tour de France is the fact that anyone can cycle on the same routes as the 'géants de la route'. Tackling the annual L' Étape du Tour - one of the key mountain stages from that year's parcours one week before the pros is a way of getting even closer still that experience.
The 2017 Étape is based on Stage 18; the viciously jagged route from Briancon to the Col d'Izoard. The Izoard - and in particular the photogenic wasteland of the Casse Deserte near the summit - holds a special place in the history of the Tour as it was the scene for decisive solo breakaways by both Fausto Coppi and Louison Bobet in the 1950's. Black and white images of both riders tackling the unmade roads alone against the backdrop of the unique rock formations are part of the Tour's enduring legend.
