Alaphlippe already looks at the Tour in the demanding Col de la Loze

The French rider, fifth overall last year, climbed alongside Dries Devenyns and Bob Jungels to the demanding Alpine summit, which will debut in the Tour de France.


Julian Alaphilippe is already looking at the Tour de France after keeping the honey on his lips to conquer a yellow jersey that he gave in favor of Egan Bernal with three stages to go before the final arrival in Paris in the 2019 edition.

Alaphilippe is thoroughly preparing the Grande Boucle and proof of this is the photo he shared on social networks this Wednesday, in which he appears with his teammates Dries Devenyns and Bob Jungels at the top of the Col de la Loze. "Another great day of good work. An incredible finish at the top of the Col de la Loze," said the French.

This demanding climb located in the municipality of Méribel will be decisive for the future race, since it will welcome the arrival of the 17th stage in an ascent in which the Col de la Madeleine will also climb. The Col de la Loze will require runners on a 21.5 kilometer ascent to 7.8% of average slope and four final kilometers in which the slope does not go down from 9%. An ascent for which Alaphilippe has already taken references before the rest of his rivals for the Tour.
