Surely you better choose classic for the Maquisard than this one if you are in Winamplanche. Pretty boring busy road.

Je kiest toch beter klassiek voor de Maquisard dan voor deze als je in Winamplanche staat. Redelijk saaie drukke weg.

Quite a heavy one, long too. But I would always choose another if possible. The traffic isn't too bad, but they do flame often. Always straight ahead. I do it often as a descent of the Vecquee. Ideal, speeds up to 80 km/h.

Best een zware, lang ook. Maar ik zou altijd kiezen voor een andere als dit mogelijk is. Het verkeer valt mee, maar ze vlammen wel vaak. Ook altijd rechtdoor. Ik doe hem vaak als afdaling van de Vecquee. Ideaal, snelheden tot 80 per uur.

This climb is not that steep, but it is quite long by Ardennes standards. It is the ideal climb for those who like to climb on power without falling over. You can enjoy sprinting against each other. There is also a nice descent on a road as wide as the one leading up.

Deze klim is niet zo steil, maar wel behoorlijk lang naar Ardense normen. Het is de ideale klim voor wie graag klimt op de kracht zonder stil te vallen. Je kan er lekker sprintjes trekken tegen elkaar. Er hoort trouwens ook een lekkere afdaling bij op een even brede weg als die naar boven.

The Côte de Desnié is a nice and not easy climb. It all starts quite easy, but after about three kilometers there is a tough middle part with percentages around 10%. The climb is quite long so you can run out of energy completely. Because there is hardly any shade, this can happen in several ways during the summer months.
The road surface is significantly better than its neighbour, the Rosier. Although the road is quite wide, you do not encounter much traffic. If you are passed by a car, it is unfortunately often well over 80 km per hour.

De Côte de Desnié is een leuke en niet gemakkelijke klim. Het begint allemaal vrij rustig, maar na een kilometer of drie volgt een stevig middenstuk met percentages rond de 10%. De klim is vrij lang waardoor je helemaal leeg kunt lopen. Omdat er vrijwel geen beschutting is kan dat leeglopen in de zomermaanden op meerdere vlakken gebeuren.
Het wegdek is beduidend beter dan de buurman, de Rosier. Hoewel de weg vrij breed is, kom je er niet veel verkeer tegen. Áls je gepasseerd wordt door een auto gaat dat helaas wel vaak dik boven de 80 in het uur.

One of the fantastic long runners around Spa. Big through road, but still hardly any traffic.

Een van de fantastische lange lopers rond Spa. Grote doorgaande weg, maar toch nauwelijks verkeer.

Little traffic.
Nice climb. A bit heavier in the beginning. Good to train because of the length!

Weinig verkeer gehad.
Leuke beklimming. In het begin wat zwaarder. Goed om te trainen vanwege de lengte!

Had little traffic here, road surface was indeed good. The 10% part made the next kilometer feel like 10% too. After the village I was able to recover and continue pedalling.

Had hier weinig verkeer, wegdek was inderdaad goed. Het stuk 10% zorgde ervoor dat de volgende kilometer ook als 10% voelde. Na het dorp wel kunnen herstellen en lekker door kunnen trappen.
