L'ETAPE DU TOUR 2001 - 19 JULY 2001
It's the Tourmalet Stage!
Sketch maps and profile are given below.
For a photo and more details of Tourmalet, click on Tourmalet
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" ......
