Col de Joux Plane

Used in the Tour de France 11 times and frequently in the Critérium du Dauphiné, this is an HC climb, making one of the toughest.  In 1997 Tour winner Marco Pantani famously raced up the 11.6km climb in 33 minutes!

The elevation profile below shows the route the Pro Tour took in the 2016 Tour de France.  This was the final climb on the penultimate day of the Tour and the last chance for riders to gain time in the GC before Paris.  The super technical, narrow, winding descent is a great test for any rider’s bike handling as they descend 10km into Morzine.
