Tour de France leaves Switzerland and heads for Domancy
The Tour de France has left Switzerland and is heading for the hills of Domancy.
Yesterday, the 184.5km alpine stage from Bern to Finhaut and the Emosson dam was won by Russian Ilnur Zakarin.
Today's stage from Sallanches to Megève will feature the first uphill time trial since 2004 at L'Alpe d'Huez.
It's the first time the ski resort of Megève in the Savoie has hosted a Tour de France stage.
Chris Froome, who finished yesterday's stage in 11th place, is favourite for this one, but has said he may suffer after the fast start of stage 17.
