Cycle Col du Tourmalet

The Col du Tourmalet has been the scene of countless battles since its first appearance in the Tour in 1910. In French it translates as ‘nasty detour’ which may be why Henri Desgrange, the Tour de France founder, thought it would be an ideal inclusion.

The classic approach is from the west starting in Luc St Sauveur and climbs for 18km at an average of 7.5% to the summit at 2115m.
