Stage 10 of the 2012 Tour De France is both the halfway point of the sport's most prestigious event, but also the first of the High Mountain stages in this year's course. Cyclists will race from Macon for a lengthy stretch on to the Juras Mountains before finishing the stage at Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, 194.5 km later.
The first HC (Beyond Categorization) climb will occur at the Col du Grand Colombier with an altitude of 1,501 m. The Col du Grand Colombier has never been part of the Tour and will challenge riders with its steep inclines.
SB Nation takes a quick tour of the grueling stage using the innovative satellite image technology of Google Earth Pro.
