Never realized how ironic it is that the route was probably changed due to Contador not quite turning around the gc on the old route for two years in a row, just before Contador retired. Then again in the first year with the new route someone tried the Contador trademark attack again and it immediately worked

If they had changed the route a couple years earlier, Alberto probably would have had 2 more Paris-Nice on his palmares. Otoh Col des Quatre Chemins is shorter than Eze so less space to make up time. We'll never know but as you say it's definitely interesting :p
