Col du Portet Inauguration.... Be the first, before the champions, to take up the challenge! The last eight kilometers of the Col du Portet road, previously difficult to pass, will be finalized in early July to allow the unprecedented arrival of the Tour de France 2018, on July 25. You will be able to climb the entire pass in preview at Vignec roundabout. A bib and a goodie will be given to the first 1000 registered. They will be distributed at the Vignec roundabout starting at 9 am. This pass will allow you, since Espiaube, to freely access the Col du Portet road from 9 am to 7 pm on this inaugural day. The Col road will be closed to all other traffic all day.
