    * Tricky sections:
    The first difficulty is a little-known pass known as the faux col des cyclotouristes, with its 1,019m vertical drop and 13.5kms. It's a genuinely difficult climb, winding its way up past the medieval town of Conflans.
    Take care on the descent.
    Then it's on to the mytic Bizanne 1500 climb from Villard sur Doron with an average gradient of 8.5%. With sections at 12%, this climb will live up to all its promises over 14.5 km and 1225m of ascent!
