    The only tricky section will be the Col de la Colombière.
    Starting in Scionzier, you can warm up over 2km. From Blanzy, the hostilities begin with 1.1 km at 5%, then 2 km at 8% and finally 1 km at 6.5%. You'll have to make the most of a generous flat area of between 2 and 3% for 3km as far as Le Reposoir, because the second part of this climb will be no picnic: 7.3km at an average gradient of 8.5%!
    It's the last 3km that will seem interminable, a terrible finish with 2km at 9.5% and then the last 800 metres at 10.5% to reach the Col de la Colombière.
