Col d’Allos

 Col d’Allos 

Col d’Allos (elevation 2,250 m (7,380 ft)) is a high mountain pass in the Alps in the department of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in France. It connects Barcelonnette in the Ubaye Valley and Colmars. It lies parallel to the Col de la Cayolle and Col de la Bonette west of the Parc National du Mercantour. The source of the Verdon River is near the pass. Between 1911 and 1939, the Col d’Allos barely missed a year in the Tour de France (one of the most popular cols). François Faber was the first rider to cross the pass in 1911 and since then, it has been part of the route 33 times. It was last part of the 2000 Tour, (13th stage) when Pascal Hervé was the first to summit, in 2015 the mountain was again visited by Tour de France at Stage 17 this was won by Simon Geschke. This is also the climb where Eddy Merckx attacked just before the summit at the Tour of 1975. He had been punched in the stomach the day before, and would eventually lose the Tour on the climb to Pra Loup following the descent of the Col d’Allos.
