Col du Galibier at risk of being removed from 2024 Tour de France due to heavy snow fall

On the 2nd of July, stage 4 of the 2024 Tour de France is supposed to be headlined by a summit of the mythical Col du Galibier before a descent to the finish line in Valloire.

Just a couple of weeks out from the 2024 Tour de France getting underway however, the Col du Galibier is currently unpassable due to a heavy snow fall in the region. As seen by images posted onto X (Twitter), the roads of the Galibier can seen covered in a thick blanket of picturesque white snow. What's worse, according to Wielerrevue, the weather forecasts in the region don't look like they things will be improving over the next two weeks.

As as options for changing the route and profile of stage 4 of the 2024 Tour de France, it's not yet totally clear how things might turn out. This could be a story to continue watching develop over the next few weeks as the Tour de France gets closer. See the current scenes for yourself down below!
