Wind, cobbles, punchy climbs, a handful of grueling mountain-top finishes, almost no individual time trial – Tour de France organizers have designed one of the most exciting courses for the 2015 race, which will heavily favor the climbers.The Tour will climax with a nervous, demanding penultimate stage finishing at l'Alpe d'Huez, with the race winner likely emerging from a nerve-wracking three-week dogfight.It will be far from over, however, as four consecutive grueling mountain stages are on the menu in the final week in the Alps.The 19th stage will be the queen stage, with a 138 km ride to La Toussuire, featuring four demanding climbs, before the 20th stage, which should favor the aggressive riders, as it is only 107 km long, with the col du Galibier in the middle.
