Hardest climb on L'Etape 2024, maybe due to heat. Irregular, some scenic moments but also some boring parts. Descent towards La Bollene-Vesubie is a bit technical.

If Anton Pieck had drawn an Alpine mountain in the Efteling fairy tale forest, it would undoubtedly have looked like the Turini. In one word: beautiful!
On the col itself, unfortunately, there are only deserted hotels. The only one that is still open is hotel le Chamois, but that is a case of 'get the hell out'. The climb from the col to the barracks of l'Authion is worthwhile. Some extra altitude metres and rewarded with extra views.

Als Anton Pieck een Alpencol had getekend in het sprookjesbos Efteling, dan had hij er ongetwijfeld als de Turini uitgezien. In één woord: prachtig!
Op de col zelf heb je jammer genoeg louter verlaten hotels. De enige die nog open is, is hotel le Chamois, maar dat is gevalletje ‘met gierende banden wegwezen’. De klim vanaf de col naar barakken van l’Authion is de moeite waard. Toch wat extra hoogtemeters en wordt beloond met extra uitzicht.

First part beautiful but easy. Second part from the reel less beautiful but more difficult

Première partie magnifique mais facile. Deuxième partie depuis moulinet moins belle mais plus difficile

A very long pass (which could be divided into 2 passes) which is not complicated and the landscape is nice too!

Col bien long (qu'on pourrait plutôt recouper en 2 cols) qui n'est pas pour autant compliqué et le paysage est chouette en plus !
