Les Gets - Summer Biking event with Chris Froome in Les Gets
The Criterium du Dauphin is going through Les Gets and Morzine this weekend, you should be able to see Chris Froome at some point between 1.00 and 1.15 on Saturday. This is the 7th stage of the race and is well known as being a key event before the Tour de France. The stage details are shown opposite.
Based on previous events, the roads will be full of people wanting to get a glimpse of Froome – should be an exciting day. The local route is:
Les Gets > Hotel du Savoie roundabout > Route de la Combe a Zore > La Rotonde > Place de l'Office de Tourisme > Rue du Bourg > Mairie > Route des Bois Venants > Montrond > Plagnettes > St Jean d'Aulps.
Road closures will start at around 12.00.
You may also have heard of the rumors in the press, particularly in the UK's Sunday Times, that Sir Bradley Wiggins may not ride in the Tour de France, as Froome could well be set to be the leader.
My personal view is that it would make huge sense for Bradley to be in the Sky Team, either as leader or as key supporter for Froome, the Tour can only be won by the strongest team and even if Wiggens was not chosen to be the leader, his support could make the difference between Froome winning and not.
