After what happened yesterday Friday with the suspension of the 19º stage when the cyclists were facing the last part of the descent to climb the last port of the day, the organization has decided to cut and modify the route of the 20ª stage since they give bad weather with rain and snow in the final part of the stage.
The stage will start at 14.30 hours and will start at the planned point, the town of Albertville, and will end in Val Thorens.
The main change of the test is that It will not pass through the ports prior to the ski resort. Thus, after leaving Albertville the race will travel through the N90 directly to Moutiers and then towards the original end at the roundabout of the N90-D915, at 36 km from the goal, until you reach the skirts of Val Thorens, where a battle for the yellow jersey is expected in one of the most exciting Tour finals of recent years.
