    Col du Tourmalet

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The route Laurent Fignon is probably the nicer way to the summit even though hardly anyone uses it (from Luz -Saint-Sauveur). It branches off to the right just after the …

    Col de Spandelles

    Road Cycling Highlight

    Col de la Core

    Road Cycling Highlight

    He is a lonely, quiet pass, which is rarely part of the Tour de France and therefore spared by great cyclist bustle. It's great to combine with other passes for nice short and extravagant tours of Seix or Castillon-en-Couserans.
