The Tour de France has crossed Col du Tourmalet in so many years since 1910, in which was crossed for the first time. It is the most used climb in Tour de France history. Getting the first position at the top of Col du Tourmalet is a big honour for every cyclist. Some say that

This is Mirador de #Jaizkibel. We ended a trip from #Mediterranean sea to #Atlantic ocean across the #Pyrenees in 8 stages, 987 km and 18 major #mountain passes. Such an #adventure! #roadcycling #biketrip #biketour

Another big appointment next summer in Catalonia: La Ruta Minera. 154 km with 3800 mts elevation. A monster climb included: Coll de Pradell! This is one of the big moments in the cycling season in Catalonia. More info: http://www.larutaminera.org/en/

It is very difficult to make a ranking of the most demanding cycling climbs in the Pyrenees. One of the newest climbs asphalted is Col du Portet, said to be the new Tourmalet by the TdF director, not a joke… This new climb will have real big numbers, and deserves to be among the king

We are glad to have new climbs in the Pyrenees included in Tour de France 2018 route! Col de Portet, 2215 mts, 1390 m elev. This is a BIG climb! Possibly we will make a reckon this autumn before the snow covers the mountains… #tdf2018 #climbsbeforeyourdie #coldeportet #pyrenees
