Ride opens for attempts at midnight 29th April 2019, and closes on Midnight on the 23rd June 2019, ride must be completed within that window for it to count otherwise you get the time of the slowest rider plus 5%. Heading back to the alps for an ascent of the Col d'Izoard from Arvieux. Although this is the shorter side at only 13.36m and 974m of ascent, le Tour counts the climb as staring in Guillestre and is actually 19km in length making for an average gradient of only 4.8%. As the guys at BRVR have knocked off the initial 'flat' 6Km you have to deal with a average of 6.9% with the maximum sustained gradient of 10%. Being the generous chaps they are, they have included a small section of dark blue descent The Col d'Izoard has appeared 34 times in le Tour first in 1922, and most recently in 2017 when it featured as the summit finish to the stage, being won by Warren Bargueil.
