The Tour de France 2017 tackles its final day in the mountains on stage 18 with the biggest summit finish of the race

Wednesday’s 179.5km stage from Briançon to the Col d’Izoard would see the riders tackle two big climbs, ascending the first category Col de Vars before a summit finish on the hors categorie Col d’Izoard.

With only three summit finishes on this year’s race, the Izoard finish has always stood out as one of the few moments where the general classification contenders can really make a difference.

And with the top four on GC separated by less than a minute, there is more incentive than ever for the riders to go one the attack, particularly with Froome holding the advantage of being the strongest against the clock going into Saturday’s final time trial.

The Tour de France continues on Friday with a long 222.5km stage from Embrun to Salle-de Provence. The race concludes on Sunday July 23 in Paris.
