L'Etape du Tour

Challenge "Grimpeur"

The climbs will be timed, allowing you to compare your performances on each pass.

Getting through the passes and mountain challenges are part of the Etape du Tour identity.

We would like to highlight the effort that you furnish during these climbs by giving you the opportunity to compare your performances with those or your friends and the best climbers of the pack.

To do so, there will be timing rugs placed down at the bottom and at the summit of the Tourmalet Pass and Hautacam to give you your real climbing time.

2 Timing Zones :

Tourmalet climb: Between Sainte-Marie-de-Campan (Km 77.4) and the summit of the Tourmalet Pass (Km 94.5)
Hautacam climb: Between Ayros-Arbouix (Km 134.4) and the summit of Hautacam (Km 148)

Using these times, a special “grimpeur” (climber) ranking will be made on each climb.
