Exhaustion and jubilation are mixed together for the winner of such a stage.

The stage winner and all jersey holders are expected to make a podium visit.

They will have a quick wipe down and be given a clean jersey and underclothing.

It is easy to catch a cold after depleting the body during the stage.

La Plagne is at an altitude of 1880m, so it can be quite chilly.
