2014 Etape du Tour – Tourmalet

This Tacx download film contains the legendary climb of the Col du Tourmalet, the first Pyrenees mountain that was ever included in the route of the Tour de France. From the village of Sainte-Marie de Campan you take the famous D918 road to the ski resort of La Mongie and the final 4 kilometres to the top of the col at a height of 2,115 metres. The summit is marked by the large statue of Octave Lapize, who was the first rider to conquer the Tourmalet in the 1910 Tour de France.

More Pyrenees mountains feature in part I and II of the ‘Raid Pyrenees’ Blu-ray series, an epic coast to coast route from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.

Difficulty – Very hard
