Stage 18 has five categorized climbs and goes up and down from the get-go. The first climb is the Cormet de Roselend (19 kilometres with a 6% average gradient).

The descent runs onto the Col de Saisies (15km at 5.1%). Then, it comes the Col des Aravis appears (6.7 kilometres at 7%).

The core of the race is expected to be the steep and partly unpaved Plateau des Glières. This mountain climbs for 6 kilometres at 11.2% and never drops below 10%. Plus, it is only 30 kilometres away from the finish line and it containst two kilometers of false flat gravel roads.

The last ascent is the Col des Fleuries, which is a 5.5 kilometres climb at 4.6% that the riders crest with 10 kilometres out, before a 10 kilometer descent to the finish in La Roche-sur-Foron.

Stamina will be a key factor, Bahrein-McLaren will not run in front of the peloton and GC contenders are extremely fatigued. A big breakaway could take advantage of it although riders with limited time trialing skills may opt to strike earlier with an all-or-nothing attack.

Our Stage 18 Favorites

GC duellists Primoz Roglic, Tadej Pogacar and Miguel Angel Lopez (correctly tipped as stage 17 winner by our tipsters) are the logical favorites should Jumbo Visma (or Astana) keep things tight.

Mikel Landa was the first of the favourites to get dropped in the final part of the Col de la Loze, and we give the Spaniard no chance to bounce back on Thursday. The same could be said about Nairo Quintana while Egan Bernal has left the Tour given his lack of fitness.  

Only a huge surprise could see riders like Enric Mas, Adam Yates, Richie Porte and Rigoberto Uran beat the Slovenian duo and the Astana's captain.

Any other likely scenario?

Daniel Martinez, Warren Barguil and Maximilian Schachmann are likely attackers, with good chances to upset the favorites. This stage could be the last chance also for riders like Thomas De Gendt and Alessandro De Marchi, or for Frenchmen such as David Gaudu, Nans Peters, Pierre Rolland and Valentin Madouas. The latter has been quite brilliant in the last few days.

Julian Alaphilippe was the first rider over the top of the Plateau des Glières in 2018, en route to the stage win and we expect the Frenchman to escape again, trying to make the difference on descents.

Lennard Kamna and Richard Carapaz should be tired after two hard days spent in the breakaway while Marc Hirschi, Pello Bilbao, Marc Soler, Jesus Herrada, Team Ineos's Pavel Sivakov and Michal Kwiatkowski could be the long shots of the day.

We would overlook Thibaut Pinot, Alejandro Valverde and Daniel Martin again.
