A profile of the l'Alpe d'Huez stage from cyclingnews.com.

Includes a table of every winner at l'Alpe d'Huez since 1952. Andy Hampsten was the first American to win the stage, back in 1992. Fausto Coppi and Lance Armstrong are the only two to win the stage and the Tour in the same year.

Marco Pantani still holds the record for fastest climb of the mountain at 37:35 in 1997.

There's a photo gallery of great moments in l'Alpe d'Huez history, as well.
