Lac d’Annecy – stage 18 time trial

Posted on Updated on

A good view of Lac d’Annecy in the Haute Savoie, the site of stage 18 of the Tour de France. The lake is about 30km south of Geneva, Switzerland. You get a good idea of the length of the lake here. It has about 35km of shoreline.

Trans. “Duingt Peninsula between my feet” — a stunning aerial view of Lac d’Annecy by Bruno Lamaison. Click on the photo to view his flickr page. Couldn’t resist looking ahead to Thursday’s Tour de France time trial around the lake.

From the Lac d’Annecy website:

After 11 years, the Tour de France finds Lake Annecy and its left bank. What a wonderful place for the last individual time-trial all around the lake! The Tour Caravan will pass from Sevrier to Duingt between 9.10 and 9.26 am. Competitors will race through Annecy at 10.50 am. The first cyclist will pass in Sevrier at 10.53 am; the last one at 5.02 pm in Duingt.
