Crossing of mountain high passes, mountains challenges are the identity of the Etape du Tour.
We wish to highlight your efforts during these ascents and allow you to compare your performance with those of your friends, also those with the best climbers.
For this, timing points will be installed at the bottom and top of each pass to give you four times achieved on these climbs.
From the time taken, a special classification "Grimpeur" will be established on each pass.
This new feature will be opened on the 2012 two acts.
Come measure yourself against the legendary cols.
