Col du Tourmalet

with No Comments

The legendary Col du Tourmalet made famous in many Tour de France stages will once again put riders to the test this July. As part of Stage 18 racing from Pau to Hautacam, this 145 kilometer stage will turn violently upward 95 kilometers into the day. Here the true climbers and GC contenders will once again have their final opportunity in the mountains to claim victory in Paris.

Michael’s drawing of the Col du Tourmalet celebrates the famous 2115 meter hors catégorie climb with old school style and grace. As our rider ascends into the clouds we can only wonder what this grueling road must be like in the heat of competition.
