Profile Risoul 1850

For me the most attractive aspect of the climb from Guillestre to Risoul 1850 were the panoramic views in almost all directions, with the Écrins with its snow- and ice-covered mountains as the most striking eye-catcher. Unfortunately there are less scenic attractions in the direct vicinity of the wide, winding road. Risoul 1850, the destination of the ride, looks relatively good for a French winter sports resort but beautiful would certainly be too generous a compliment. A total of 984 meters of altitude are climbed on a road that is nowhere steep (the steepest kilometer slopes 8.4%). The first 9.5 kilometers are with an average of 5.3% slightly less steep than the remaining 6.4 kilometers (7.4%).
