Tour de France stage 16
Wednesday 21st July | 15.5 km | Bourg d'Oisans to L'Alpe d'Huez


Stage 16
The most horrific of all this year's stages despite being just 15km long.

Alpe d'Huez is one of the Tour's most famous stages, where Iban Mayo won last year.

Each hairpin on the mountain highlights a former winner of the stage here. Our animated guide picks out some of the most famous years at selected corners.

Armstrong produced a blistering ride to blitz away his rivals in arguably the Tour's toughest stage.

The movie is 60k and should take no more than 15 seconds to download over a 56k modem.
