The challenging route starts at the Mediterranean village of Llançà, located in the comarca of Alt Empordà in Catalonia, and finishes in the Basque city of San Sebastián, located in the south of the Bay of Biscay, just a day before Tour d’France Starts!
The route is 1,050km long with 25.000m of elevation gain. It includes a total of 33 Cols. The highest on this edition will be the mythical Tourmalet (2.115m) and the special one-way Col, the amazing Troumouse (2090m).
This Five edition will have more backroads and explosive ends in the Basque Pyrenees with some hilly climbs that you are aware since now for this challenge.
