Side La Chambre

On of the typical Tour mountains. Without any doubt, long climb facing us. Very constant gradient from this side. Since leaving La Chambre, the gradient becomes 7-8%, surrounded by a huge forest. Good road always, quite wide this time, not perfectly surfaced, like most French roads.

Central detail of the climb

Still quite a lot to Longchamp. We are in the mid-part, and the gradient turns to 10% for a moment, but always very regular. Getting into Longchamp, landscape smells to summit. But we're still with 5km to go, a bit easier, but never below 7%.

Jordi Rubio2 leaving Longchamp

Honestly a nice climb, without steep gradients, one of those you must have done. With 39x23 you can do it...but you know if you're not fit it must be eternal
