The Col du Galibier el. It is the eighth highest paved road in the Alps , and recurrently the highest point of the Tour de France. The pass is closed during the winter. It is located between the massif d'Arvan-Villards and the massif des Cerces , taking its name from the secondary chain of mountains known as the Galibier. Before , the tunnel was the only point of passage at the top, at an altitude of m. The tunnel was closed for restoration until , and a new road was constructed over the summit. The re-opened tunnel is a single lane controlled by traffic lights , which are among the highest such installations in Europe.
Before the parcours gets unveiled, I usually try to empathise with the organizers to attempt to understand how they will desing some stages. This is obvious as the sporting interest is still the most important one and Gouvenou answered the critics in good way, comparing the and maps. Talking about the next edition, it has some really good medium mountain stages in the first week, I would say it slightly remind a Giro and this is good. Other good things are that they rediscovered two long and high climbs in the Alps like Iseran and Val Thorens and the 7 ascents above meters of altitude, but unfortunately these are the only positive aspects. As already announced on January, the Grande Boucle will start with a wide tour around Bruxelles, climbing the Kapelmuur and the Bosberg in the first part, some short hills and a meters easy cobbles sector. They could have designed a way more interesting route going for some Flemish Ardennes climbs, even without using too much cobbles sections, and putting the Bruine Put near the finish — profile of the alternative , detail of the finale , and interactive map. The following TTT will be almost 30 km long, with a flat and fast route.
