There was none before today too, because TJ Sports - Lampre was going to be a team registered in China.

The stage to Champery seems to be almost entirely flat except for a climb to Vex(?) before the last climb. And Champery is almost an uphill sprint territory going by the 2013 Dauphine.

And Leysin seems to be over the Pillon so the final should be the same as in 2011

Apparently they really want to do the double Zoncolan in 2018, just recently Sutrio spend 300k for works on the 3rd, unused road of the Zoncolan from Priola, 8.9 km at 12.8%.

I think that a double Zoncolan ascent would be a logistic nightmare, you can't really use the Sutrio side as the first one, the narrow tunnel's on the Ovaro side would be a problem for the neutral cars on the descent and Zoncolan from Ovaro would also be a mess, the final 3km of the Zoncolan form Priola would be identical to the first 3 of the descent.
You could descent back down to Sutrio right after the junction of the 2 ascents or you could have the finish right there, there's a Ski station right at junction. In that case the final climb would be 5.7km at 12.8%.
