Arguably the most iconic climb in the world. Alpe dHuez was first included in the Tour de France in 1952 and has been a stage finish regularly since 1976. That first Alpe dHuez stage was won by the Italian Fausto Coppi. Coppi attacked 6 kilometres from the summit to rid himself of the French rider Jean Robic.

L'Alpe d'Huez is one of the main mountains in the Tour de France. It has been a stage finish almost every year since 1976, although absent from the route in both 2009 and 2010, the first time since 1976 that it has missed two consecutive years. It is a favourite on all Tour de France anniversary years. The first was in 1952, won by Fausto Coppi
