Preview: What you need to know about stage 10 of the 2022 Tour de France

Probably another stage for the breakaway, but one that should affect the GC.

by Kit Nicholson

Date: Tuesday July 12
Start: Morzine
Finish: Megeve
Distance: 148 km

After a well-deserved rest day, it’s one for the television cameras. Expect box office views of Lake Geneva, stunning mountains, and sweeping valleys as the peloton transfers south from Morzine to Megeve, finishing on the Altiport that hosted the final stage of the 2020 Critérium du Dauphiné.

The result that day? Jumbo-Visma’s Sepp Kuss the victor, Dani Martínez (Ineos Grenadiers) second, and Tadej Pogačar third. Primož Roglič, who’d held the jersey before that final stage 5, didn’t take the start, so rather than having bad memories of Megeve, he has none, but will be hoping for a better day than two years ago nonetheless.

The climb to the altiport is a long one: 19.2 km at 4.1%.

Who will win stage 10?

With two HC summit finishes looming in the coming days, the break may be given the keys once again. Someone like Giulio Ciccone to have a crack here?
