This stage will include the emblematic ascent of Bemelerberg and Cauberg, famous for the Amstel Gold Race, as well as the formidable climbs of Redoute and Roche-aux-Faucons, legendary as part of Liège-Bastogne-Liège in Belgium
The culmination of this unique adventure is located in our majestic Alps. The final weekend will first include a long odyssey to Grand-Bornand in Haute-Savoie. Finally, the queen stage will display an impressive elevation gain of 3,900 meters . This stage will take the famous col du Glandon on its steepest side (19.7 km at 7.2%) before concluding at Alpe d’Huez (13.8 km at 8.1%), a new summit finish for the women. Another legendary finish now integrated into the Women’s Tour, one year after the success of Demi Vollering in 2023, marked by her victory at the Tourmalet.
