Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

In order to pay dignified tribute to René Vietto, the Col de Braus will be largely in the spotlight with the ascent of its two slopes.

It is at the top of the famous pass of the nice hinterland, where the Cannes climber built his legend in the Tour de France (which has passed 27 times here), that is his stele where his ashes were deposited. The "Braus" will therefore first be climbed by its slope of the Escarène (10km to 6.5%), famous for its superb chains of laces... and its 2 passes at 15%! Then it will be the side of Sospel that will have to face (11km to 5.7%). At its summit, no descent as we will head towards the small pass of the Ablé making the transition to the Saint Roch pass by its side of Lucéram. After the long desecnte to Contes, the time will be stopped at the top of the Calaisson pass from where you can reach Drap safely.
