This third post is again about the northern end out of the valley, as before close to / starting from our apartment in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne.
During my previous Tour de France, I cycled Lacets de Montvernier and Col du Chaussy, but there are two more to be had.
After plotting this stage, I noticed a bomb sign next to the first climb.
Signs like this usually do not mean anything good and in this case, it means
Explosion hazard: at least 500 m in one stretch with an average of 12% or steeper.
Then again, as I have not seen that particular sign so far, all the others I’ve scheduled must be easy 😂
And seriously, stretches like that are bad, but if you’ve been cycling around in the Alps, you have most definitely encountered them before.
My next post will be about two more climbs, starting a bit further out, near La Chambre and Saint-Étienne-de-Cuine.
Although I can actually start those from our doorstep too…
