Col de la Lombarde

Departing Vinadio in glorious sunshine at the bottom of the Lombarde on Stage 2 in 2017, Curistas could not have imagined what awaited them at the summit – driving hail, freezing temperatures and a wind which blew Debbie McMenamin clean off the road (thankfully without harm).

Surprisingly, what is – hail aside – a gorgeous climb with some testing, steep sections has only featured in the Tour de France once (in 2008).
