Summary

Explore the thrill and intensity of the Tour de France's most challenging climbs as never before, through the breathtaking aerial photography of Google Earth. In this stunning book, 20 notorious Hors Categorie climbs from the race—ascents that are beyond classification—are captured in high-definition satellite imagery. They include the 2,715-meter ascent of Col de la Bonette, the historic Great St Bernard Pass, Col du Galibier's incredibly torturous 15 percent gradient climb, and Alpe de Huze's famous hairpins. As well as providing expertly annotated high-definition maps of these ascents, the book charts the daring Tour exploits of iconic Tour riders such as Fausto Coppi and Marco Pantani.
