Valpelouse Ascent

1360 Points – One of the Top 10 Défis du Cyclogrimpeur. It includes 10 kilometres at an average gradient of 9.9% - a French record. Take care, as parts of the road near the top are in very poor repair.

Although little known, this climb is well worth seeking out. Unfortunately the upper section of the road has not been well maintained, so take care during the descent.
