Cote de La Redoute

prev - next


La Redoute is an odd climb, initially running parallel to the motorway (this time of year crammed with motor caravans ready for the pros), then the road, seemingly for no reason, careers left up the hillside. It's the home town of current world champion Philippe Gilbert and his name is marked on the road every 10 metres. It's steep, very steep. An absolute classic.
