Contest #768: Col de Galibier, France

This week’s contest location was Col de Galibier, France visited twice in the past 10 days by the Tour de France riders.

This location first appeared on the roster in 1911, just a year after the Tourmalet had first ushered high mountains into the race. As you may remember, those forced to do battle with the Pyrenees in 1910 accused the race’s mastermind, Henri Desgrange, of being ‘murderers’, but this clearly didn’t deter him.
