Get ready to climb the legendary Tourmalet, the very first col ever added to the Tour de France in 1910. Before this date, the mountains were not part of the race. It is also the mountain pass that has been included in the Grande Boucle more times than any other. The second challenge of the day will be the Hourquette d’Ancizan which will grace you with its spectacular lush mountain setting and serene atmosphere.
-Col du Tourmalet (18.4 km at 7.5 %)
