Col de la Madeleine from the south
– Starting from St Jean de Maurienne, the ride down the valley to La Chambre provides a good warm up. Given its southerly aspect and lack of shade, this climb is best started early on summer days.
The resort of St François Longchamp is a good place to take a break before the final hairpins. 1283 Points
