This climb bridges a large number of elevation meters (1290 m).
Since there are few cars and road conditions are fair,
it certainly is appropriate for race bikers.
The first 6 kilometers with a slope between 3 and 5% are not but a warming up.
Then, in Entraunes climbing becomes more serious
with a slope of 8% for most of the remaining 13 kilometers
and ~1000 elevation meters.
With ~5 km to go, the road bends to the left
to aim for the col making some hair pin turns.
Road conditions are fair and,
perhaps because I was late, I saw no other race bikers.
