I’ve dreamed of doing this forever. Climb Col du Tourmalet, the most famous pass in the Pyrenées and then go much higher on an unpaved path to the towering Pic du Midi de Bigorre.
A Col du Tourmalet mountain top finish? I must have died and gone to cycling heaven. Yes, it is the Queen stage of the 2010 Tour de France. Do not miss this.
Stage 16 celebrates the first great Pyrenées Stage in Tour de France history, in 1910, by including the same four climbs from that stage.
