One of the last major Tour de France climbs of the Pyrenees that we have not until now filmed.  This climb became notorious when Lance Armstrong became entangled in a spectators bag & had to chase back to the leaders.  This climb is fairly hard with not a lot of easy grades to rest on. constant climbing although most of it is not too steep. The start is fairly wooded & you will pass a cycling club that’s spaced out through this section. The final half of the climb has some spectacular views along with some steep sections.
