In August 2018, I cycled up the French side of this literally cross-border Col
First kilometres are immediately steep (+10%) to quickly leave departure town Isola, on the Tinée River, deep below us. Middle part is less steep and curvy and the last 4 km. after the ski station we have a good climb on a narrower road through hairpin turns, winding above the tree line in the middle of a rough and uninhabited mountain scenery to the summit at the border.
The initially wide route is built to bring many winter sports people safely to the ski station Isola 2000 but is absolutely no fast highway but beautifully constructed with lots of hairpin bends, bridges over the river, some short tunnels, in a beautiful natural setting with hardly any traffic in summer. The ski station remains of course something built by people in the mountains but it is not so bad.

There were bike infoboards every kilometer with height, distance to the top and gradient. Most of them were on the other side, left of the road.
You can get supplies at the start, in the ski station and a mobile snack bar on the top.

This beauty you should not let you pass!
Incomprehensible that both Giro and Tour barely include it in their ride schedule.
The Italian side is even more beautiful!

In Augustus 2018 de Franse zijde van deze letterlijk grensoverschrijdende Col op gefietst
Eerste kilometers zijn direct steil (+10%) om vertrekstadje Isola, aan de Tinée rivier, snel diep onder ons te laten. Middendeel is minder steil/bochtig om de laatste 4 km. na het skistation weer goed te stijgen op een smallere weg via haarspeldbochten kronkelend boven de boomgrens te midden een ruw onbewoond bergdecor tot de top op de grens.
De aanvankelijk brede route is aangelegd om veel wintersporters veilig naar skistation Isola 2000 te brengen maar is absoluut geen snelle autostrade maar mooi aangelegd met veel haarspeldbochten, brugjes over de rivier, enkele korte tunnels, in een prachtig natuurlijk kader met zomers amper verkeer. Het skistation blijft natuurlijk iets door mensen gebouwd in de bergen maar het valt nog wel mee.Ik heb er zelfs een week verbleven als wandel & fiets uitvalsbasis..

Er stonden fietsinfobordjes elke kilometer met hoogte,afstand tot de top en stijgingspercentage. De meeste stonden wel aan de overzijde, links van de weg
Bevoorrading kan bij de start,in het skistation en een mobiele snackbar op de top.

Deze prachtcol mag je niet aan je laten voorbijgaan!!!
Onbegrijpelijk dat zowel Giro en Tour hem amper opnemen in hun rittenschema.
Italiaanse zijde is nog mooier!

A lesser known climb but certainly not to be underestimated, the first 3 and last 3 km are tough. In between it is a runner but the length and height make it a tough climb. The descent Italian side is fabulously beautiful but very narrow and technical. The French side is much wider and less beautiful.

Een minder bekende klim maar zeker niet te onderschatten, de eerste 3 en laatste 3 km zijn zwaar. Tussendoor is het een loper maar de lengte en hoogte maken het een zware klim. De afdaling Italiaanse kant is fabelachtig mooi maar zeer smal en technisch. De Franse kant is veel breder en minder mooi.
