I have planned two stages to the Haute-Savoie, but there’s plenty to be had starting at my doorstep in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne.
These “left-overs” from last year’s Tour de France will probably keep me busy for – at least – another two stages.
My previous post was about climbs leading out of the valley on the north side, this one is about a similar stage with cols on the other end.
I actually had one such stage planned last year, but that was cancelled as I managed to break myself.
Although there are two alternatives to get up to Albane, I cannot pick the one over the D81.
The one passing by/through Karelis (the same <link> as above) is okay, but perhaps there are construction works going on right now.
I’ll find out when I get there…
The other one is going in the opposite direction of our apartment, Léard.
As this is a short – but not easy – stage, I may have a shot at La Toussire from Saint-Pancrace.
I cycled up to La Toussiere during last year’s Tour de France stage 2, coming down from the Croix de Fer, taking a left at Peirrepin…
