Col de Portet d’Aspet

Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France

Mountain

This mountain is unfortunately best remembered in the Tour de France because it was the descent where Fabio Casartelli crashed and was fatally injured. You can see his memorial on the left soon after you start the climb. It’s a long climb that starts out steep and rarely lets up for the entire ride.
