Update 2022 for the 100 Cols package
The route is changed at three places.:
- At Moussac we will take a shortcut from Nozières to the cycle-bridge to cross the river Gard.
- In the descent of the Col du Platzerwasel to Munster, near the Grand Ballon (Vosges), we take a detour to attack the Col du Petit Ballon (index 3.2).
- We used to take the last col in the Tour (Col du Schanz) from the southwest side (near Still), but this road (a Route Forestière) has become very bad over the years. We will now take the col from the south-east by Westhoffen. This climb is much shorter, and thus also much more steep, but has a far better road surface (index 1.6).
