Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Col du Mollard, this cornering paradise should simply be mentioned separately. I have no idea how many hairpin bends there are, but there are a lot as you can see on the map. Beat by beat it goes up, gaining height. Unfortunately, you only have a brief view of the Maurienne valley at the beginning. Three things should be mentioned positively here: (1) in summer or in bad weather you are well protected by the forest (I drove up here in the rain, but I didn't notice much of it), (2) the gradient is relatively moderate and ( 3) nothing is going on. Pure tranquility and idyll. Asphalt is a little lousy. Therefore: better up than down.
