No, but planning on going to see the penultimate stage (Albertville to Val Thorens)...gonna try and watch on the Cormet de Roselend. Hoping to be riding 25-28th Jul, based in Saint Gervais.

Have you got accommodation sorted?

No but enjoy it. Did it in 2010, the Contador v Schleck dodgy steak fueled Tourmallet stage! Was a great experience, got round ten mins inside time limit! 3500 people didn't :shock:

Indeed we have - staying in Val Thorens in some rather brutalist ski resort accomodation!

Doesn't surprise me! This route has 4,500m of climbing spread over 3 climbs - the last being 30km of Val Thorens. Wouldn't be surprised if plenty of people get caught by the wagon on that.
