The 80th time at col du Tourmalet

The King of the day is the col du Tourmalet. At an altitude of 2115 metres above sea level, it's the highest peak of the Pyrenees but not the highest of the Tour de France this year as the col d'Allos in the Alps culminates at 2250m. The Tourmalet is the most visited summit of the Tour de France. It's the eighteenth time today! The Souvenir Jacques Goddet prime of 5000 euros will be assigned to the first rider at the top of the former event director's favorite mountain. Prior to the Tourmalet, the col d'Aspin is also a regular climb on the route as it is the 72nd time today.
