Stage 11 & 12 of the 2022 Tour will long be remembered

Serre Chevalier and Briancon are slowly returning to normal after a manic week of cycling.
This time last week it was the L'Etape du Tour and then Wednesday and Thursday served up two brilliant days of TDF racing.
The valley was just full of cyclists. And finally the Col du Granon will not be the poor cousin to the Izoard and Galibier when it comes to featuring in a stage of the Tour. However, due to the steep gradients it will still probably not be as popular a ride as the Izoard and Galibier.
Thursday saw the peloton race up through the valley towards the Lautaret and on up the Galliber resulting in a stunning victory for Tom Pidock at Alpe D'huez.
