Story by Rosie Shaw from , United Kingdom, submitted on 07/02/2008
Hello! I know the Tour is going up the Col de Portel this year and me and my friend are going to go and watch. Does anyone know if its possible to camp at the top for any length of time, and wheres the best place to watch the cyclists come up? we were thinking about right at the top, but Im not sure if there will be barriers. If anyone has any ideas to help they would be much appreciated!

Story by Martin from , UK, submitted on 15/10/2007
The real story on this climb is not the Portel but the Crouzette. This is signposted from Biert and it comes in three stages. A hardish bit then some respite then 4km at 10%, so get your climbing legs on. At the top of Crouzette you head right going up a bit then down a bit then up a bit to reach the Portel. Fine panorama from the top but no facilities. Descent from the Portel is a choice of two opposites. Short and very sharp down the Peguere to Massat or long, very long down to Foix. PS look out for horses on the final bit to the Portel.
