One of the most well-known and feared climbs of the Vosges complete with its infamous ski slope ending. This is a climb that’s fast becoming a Tour de France icon being the first summit finish of the 2012, 2014 & now 2017 events. The 2012 Tour de France stage was won by Chris Froome with his team-mate Bradley Wiggins taking the race lead. Two years later the stage was won by Vincenzo Nibali. This climb, that follows the route of the 2017 race, starts with an easy warm up climb past the village of Fresse and some descending and light valley riding to recover before the main climb that with a fairly steep section. It is a hard climb to ride at a steady pace with various sections of steep grades and even a few short descents.
