Le 10 Col Challenge France


16th – 23rd June 2017

This new exciting challenge will take you over 10 of the most notorious cols over 8 days that Le Tour has to offer in both the Pyrenees and the Alps as well as the daddy of them all – Mont Ventoux. This is your chance to bag the biggest names in cycling and point at your TV throughout many Julys to come and say, … “I’ve climbed that.” Le 10 Cols rates 4 out of 5 in terms of difficulty. It should only be undertaken by experienced cyclists who have trained for this type of terrain. There is, of course, full vehicle support and a lift to the top should you need it but the experience will be far greater for those with a reasonable degree of fitness. A training programme is included in the pre-challenge pack. Your trip funds are protected by PTS.

Le 10 Cols Challenge is designed to be tough. The itinerary includes one or more mountain passes each day and a good level of fitness is required. All stages are on tarmaced roads but some surfaces can be a bit sketchy in places – standard road bikes with compact group sets are advised.
