    For the very first time, the 2013 Tour de France took on the mythical Alpe d'Huez twice in one day by descending and then ascending the little known Col de Sarenne. In June of that year, just before the Dauphiné tested out the roads and much needed roadworks were completed, PEZ's man in France, Chris Selden cycled the route on a simply epic 150km and 4800m elevation day.

    Top Ride: Cycling the climb of Alpe d'Huez is a mythical experience, a grand beast that conjures images of epic battles on its 21 hairpin bends and leg sapping slopes.

    Race Report: The French have not had a good Tour so far, but if you are going to win a stage it might as well be the one that crosses the Alpe d’Huez twice and become the hero of France.

    Roadside Report: Alpe d'Huez is a mythical mountain, a grand beast that conjures up images of battles past with its 21 hairpin bends and its leg sapping slopes. I've been roadside on the Alpe during the Tour de France on a few occasions including the famous mountain time trial in 2004 but I'd never seen the mountain roadside in the Dauphiné.
