    The Col du Glandon is undoubtedly one of the most demanding passes in the Maurienne. You screw your way up a 20-kilometer driveway from Saint-Marie-de-Cuines, taking gradients of over 10 percent under your wheels. You follow in the footsteps of the Tour de France, which has already crossed this pass
