INTRO

Col de Madeleine is one of the many exceptional HC climbs in the Saint Jean-de-Maurienne area (in our opinion one of the greatest climbing areas in the world - Col du Galibier, Col du Télégraphe, Col de L’Iseran, Col de Glandon, Alpe d’Huez). Add that it has been featured in the Tour de France 25 times from 1969 (admittedly late on the scene) to 2013 (why ignored the past 4 years?), and you have a true bucket list extraordinary climb!
