Stage 18: Sallanches > Megève

The final TT is an uphill 17 km, promising spectacular scenery and small gaps between the favourites. To be honest, I’m more excited about this information from the On The Road section of the official website:

Specialities: … Reblochon, tomme de Savoie, tome des Bauges, Abondance, Chevrotin, Emmental de Savoie (cheese), tartiflette, raclette, fondue savoyarde.

Honestly, I don’t know how you are going to choose a cheese or cheese-adjacent dish for tonight with so much choice. One thing I do know, though, is that you can’t go wrong.

Local Simmental with a marrow sauce – I am still dreaming of this from Annecy in 2013

    I think this uphill time trial will be fascinating. Hopefully we will see some change in the classification! Go Ritchie Porte! Got some cheese and some wine from our Tour Pack ready to go!
