They actually did....well most of it, at last year's Paris-Nice. Seems just as tough and was a refreshing change.Alpe d'Huez said:And I'd like to see them go up Ventoux from another direction, or go over it.
Escarabajo said:Ok. Does somebody know why they stopped racing the Puy du Dome?
As has been pointed out, the Tour entourage has outgrown the summit. Last year, there was a strong rumour that the organisers were looking into the logistics of running an ITT up there.
Epicycle said:The Colle della Finestre would be an awesome addition.
When the Giro used this awe inspiring climb, back in 2005, who was there?
Christian Prudhomme. He has said he wants to include it in a future edition of the race. Questions are: Will the Italians let him get his hands on this precious gem and how on earth will the publicity caravan get over it's unsurfaced ramps?!
Considering, it's just over the border and Sestrieres is due for a comeback....
I'd like to see an MTF at Isola 2000, after the Bonette-Restefond, again.
Oh and not haveing stages, where the organisers put climbs like the Tourmalet, 70kms from the stage finish.
I last saw Raymond walking the ITT course in Fromentine, 2005. Pou-pou still looks as fit as a fiddle.
