In 1995, Laurent Jalabert was the first winner at the top of the Côte de la Croix Neuve, which is also known as the Montée Jalabert. Ten years later, the peloton returned to the Gévaudan, but was beaten to the summit by an inspired breakaway rider, Marcos Serrano. Then, in 2010, it was Joaquim Rodriguez’s turn to fly towards the aerodrome that served as the setting for the final scene of Gérard Oury’s La Grande Vadrouille (Don’t Look Now… We’re Being Shot At!). In 2015, Thibaut Pinot and Romain Bardet were first reeled in and then caught out in the final kilometre by Steve Cummings. Finally, in 2018, Omar Fraile served up a third Spanish victory in this high place of Lozère cycling. The series continues…
