The key points
The Sprints in Les Rousses, Bois d'Amont and Chapelle des Bois where the first man crossing the line is rewarded.
The climb to La Frasse (Forêt du Massacre): Right after the race start, it's not so easy to get into a steady rythm...
The Optician's Climb : In the heart of the village of Les Rousses, a real Tour de France atmosphere !
Bois d'Amont Food stand: a much needed moment of warmth and encouragement before the dreaded ascent to the Risoux Forest...
The ascent to the Risoux : an endless effort. Some say that when you finally reach the Chalet des Ministres, the worst is behind you!
The slope to Bellefontaine, on the other side of the Risoux : the fast downhill skiers and those who picked the right wax can really make a difference here...
The Chapelle des Bois food station : a pure moment of popular bliss !
The Célestine climb, in Pré Poncet : one last uphill slope before Chaux Neuve...
Reaching the finish line in Mouthe: a long slope gently rolling down to Chaux Neuve. And supporters cheering for a last sprint!
