As the last climb in the Alps, the Mont Semnoz will tomorrow be the decisive climb in the forelast stage of the Tour de France 2013.

In the series of videos of the most important climbs in the Alps of this Tour de France, you can now discover this unique climb which will allow to determine who's the best climber of this Tour the day before the final finish in Paris, at night.

After the start in Annecy, the riders will climb the Côte du Puget of the 2nd category at km 12.5 (5.4 km @ 5.9%), the Col de Leschaux of the 3rd category at km 17.5 (3.6 km @ 6.1%), the Côte d'Aillon-le-Vieux of the 3rd category at km 43 (6 km @ 4%), the Col des Prés of the 3rd category at km 51 (3.4 km @ 6.9%), the Mont Revard of the 1st category at km 78.5 (15.9 km @ 5.6%), before they start the hors catégory Mont Semnoz climb which will have its summit at the finish at km 125 (10.7 km @ 8.5%).

Due to a strike at the occasion of the only other climb of this mountain in 1998, this will be the first time it will be climbed in the race and award points for the King of the Mountains classification. And these points, like the others awarded on the other climbs of the day, will be important, because the top 5 of this classification is seperated by only 11 points, knowing that the points on the Semnoz will be doubled since it's a hors category mountain top finish.

Hereunder you can watch the video of the climb of the Mont Semnoz (you can let the video start at a specific point by moving the bike on the map to the place where you'd like to start it):

Please note that the road of the Tour (click to see it on Google Maps) starts at 3'40" in this video or, if you move the bike icon on the map, at the crossing of the D31 with the D5.
