It's the Tourmalet Stage!

Sketch maps and profile are given below.

It looks a challenging one, folks, with the following peaks: Starting at 330 m, Aspin at 1500 meters, Tormalet at 2115 meters, and finally the Luz-Ardiden ski station at 1715 meters! Definitely not a doddle! The course length is only 90 miles though ..... For the linguistically inclined, Tourmalet means "bad detour" ......
