This French Pyrenees jersey pays homage to the midi-Pyrenees region which plays host to more than a dozen famous Tour de France categorised climbs. Anyone who has travelled into the Lourdes / Argeles-Gazost / Luz-Saint-Sauveur corridor is on a mission to tick off the bucket-list ‘cols’ on this jersey; Tourmalet, Aubisque and Hautacam!
The 18km climb to the top of Col du Tourmalet is the most famous of all TDF ‘cols’ with over 100 race ascents.
The hors categorie Col d´Aubisque climb has been passed 45 times during the Tour de France putting it in the top 5 most used climbs in race history. The dramatic mountain road between Soulor and Aubisque breathtakingly hugs the cliffs of the Cirque du Litor, passes two striking tunnels and is a cycling experience like no other!
The ride to Hautacam ski station is in our top 3 toughest climbs in the midi-Pyrenees! The 16km climb averages a brutal 8% but the damage is often done during Km 8 – 10 where the grade never drops below 10%. Are you ready to take line honours on Hautacam?
