Summary – Stage 12 – Tour de France 2018

19 July 2018

From Saturday 7th of July to Sunday 29th of July 2018, the 105th Tour de France includes 21 stages for a total length of 3351 kilometers.

THOMAS Geraint won the stage in Alpe d’Huez before DUMOULIN Tom and BARDET Romain.

THOMAS Geraint is the Yellow Jersey.

Yesterday, 19 July was not only a victory for Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas in the famous mountain stage to Alpe d’Huez.

Dutch daily Trouw also reported then on a victory for the rare Apollo butterfly, living in a mountain habitat.

This 2017 German video shows how this species grows up in a mountain environment, from caterpillar to butterfly.

There were plans to build more hotels in Alpe d’Huez, Trouw writes. However, these plans have now been stopped, as they might have negative impact on the Apollo butterflies living around Alpe d’Huez.
