16th time stage town – 113 000 inhabitants
Out of the 13 stage finishes in Mulhouse, three winners of the Tour have triumphed there: Nicolas Frantz for a first visit in 1925, Bernard Hinault on a time-trial in 1981 and Laurent Fignon in 1992. The two-time winner was then witnessing his penultimate Tour and had taken off for a long solo effort on his way up the Grand Ballon. Fifty kilometres later, he was to conquer the last of his nine stages on the event.
2nd time stage town – 1 064 inhabitants
Only skiing resort of the Haute-Saône Department, La Planche des Belles Filles entered the history of the Tour in style among the finishing sites of the race in 2012. The final part can only suit the best climbers. That day, Chris Froome was to conquer his first stage success. After working hard for his leader Bradley Wiggins, he replied to a Cadel Evans' attack in the last kilometres where the ascent was the hardest. Glory awaited team Sky at the top: stage for Froome, Yellow Jersey for Wiggins.
