Did it in 2009, coming back in 2012 to Nice to prepare myself for the season that is coming up. Great climb, great routes near Nice. Hope the weather will be as fine in februari as last time.

On a real hot day, my water ran out and i was in deep concern how to fill it up. On the crossroad to col de la madonne, from sankt agnes, theres a water crane for fill up a couple of meters to the right of the crossroad, placed on a stone. Good to know if anyone else run in to trouble.

Le fameux col de la Madone qui a donné son nom au Trek Madone apres quil eut été ""le terrain de jeu"" de Lance Armstrong pour sa preparation au tour de france. La distance officielle retenue pour le chrono de Lance est dailleurs de 12kms à 7% et non 13.6kms comme indiqué sur le site. Pour info Lance la monte en 3047 soit plus de 23kmh de moyenne!!!...Le 1er kilometre est assez facile puis ensuite la montee est assez reguliere à 7% pendant 6 kms jusquà saint agnes. ensuite 3 kms kms faciles avec cependant quelques passages courts tres raides (+10%) et les 2 derniers kms sont durs (8%/9%)...La montée propose un panorama magnifique sur la valée, menton et la mer jusquà saint agnes puis se tourne vers la montagne. Larrivée au sommet à 925m permet de rejoindre la Turbie par lautre versant. Cest un col assez difficile mais qui offre neanmoins des passages pour recuperer. Bonne grimpette !

All road cyclist who live in the Nice Monaco have a crack at the Madone on a regular basis as it is the ultimate form finder. The climb is in the sun all the way up and the descent on the other side is in the shade (you have been warned).
