Etappe 5 - Col de Tentes - Troumouse
Road Cycling Highlight
The Ride went cycling.
April 21, 2020
Two climbs are scheduled for the fifth stage today. From the valley you immediately start climbing the Col de Tentes. This beautiful climb leads through gorges and along steep mountain sides. After the ski resort you leave the woods and the view of the rugged mountains is beautiful. At the top you are a stone's throw from Spain. The second ascent soon follows and takes you to Cirque de Troumouse. A completely different climb over a narrow road that is in bad shape especially at the end and is getting steeper. The area is rugged and deserted, great for cycling.
