Stages by Tour
Infamous Alpe d’Huez and its 21 switchbacks makes a comeback in 2018. This is perhaps one of the most challenging climbing stages of the race. No fewer than three (3) epic climbs: Cols Madeleine & Croix de Fer with a finish at Alpe d’Huez. Watch the stage finish from Spyns’ VIP viewing area on Alpe d’Huez, complete with open bar, live TV coverage, and our grandstand.
Today you will see the stage finish from one of France’s most famous cities: Carcassonne. This will be one of the faster stages of the tour. Starting in the Cevennes region in central France, the pro riders will bike southwest over the “Pic de Nore” summit and then through the rolling hills and vineyards to finish in historic Carcassonne. This famous walled city was once the stronghold of the Cathars, a medieval religious group with religious origins in Armenia and Turkey. Watch the stage finish from our VIP viewing area on the scenic Boulevard Barbès.
Today you will see the stage mid-mountain from the village of Saint Lary at the base of the Col de Portet d’Aspet. This is le Tour’s first climbing stage in the Pyrenees and it’s a doozy. Pro riders will conquer no fewer than three famous French cols (peaks): Portet d’Aspet, Menthé, and Portillion. Our VIP viewing area will be at the base of the first climb in a stunning little village. Spyns’ guests will enjoy a picnic lunch, TV showing live race coverage, and roadside access to the race from Saint Lary.
Today’s stage is a fast and largely flat hook from Trie to Pau, the region’s capital. After two days of steep climbs, this stage will favour mostly sprinters. As always, we’ll provide live TV coverage, a buffet lunch, and open bar from Spyns VIP viewing area in bustling Pau.
The final mountain stage of the Tour will not disappoint. Starting in world-famous Lourdes, known for its sanctuary and healing waters, this grueling mountain stage includes no fewer than five famous peaks: Aspin; Tourmalet; Bordières; Soulor; and Aubisque. Spyns’ guests will enjoy mid-mountain VIP stage viewing today on the spectacular Col du Soulor, just 29 kms (18 miles) from the stage finish in Laruns.
For the past five years, the Tour de France has often finished with a decisive individual time trial and today the tradition continues. The stage will take place just a few miles from the Spanish border and within a short drive to France’s rugged Atlantic coast. Our time trial VIP viewing area will be mid-route near the scenic town of Souraide. The riders will loop through Souraide twice before reaching the finish.
While Paris’ famous Champs Elysees has become synonymous with the Tour de France finish, earlier Tours finished at the city’s hippodrome. Houilles is a small community just northwest of Paris. While the final stage doesn’t normally change the classifications, it is quite prestigious to win the final stage so while the pro riders spin at a relaxed pace, once the Tour reaches Paris, the sprinters give their all. Spyns’ guests will enjoy the dramatic TDF finish from our Spyns’ VIP room (again with food and open bar) at the Westin hotel overlooking the race course and Eiffel Tower. Before the race, ride the course on our traditional sunrise ride on the Champs Elysees.
