Summary
A snaking 13.8-kilometre ascent rising up through 21 numbered hairpins at an average gradient of 7.8%, Alpe d'Huez is the climb on which every great rider wants to win. Many of the sport's most famous and now even infamous names have won on the Alpe, including Bernard Hinault, Joop Zoetemelk, Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong. As well as days of brilliance, there have controversies such as the drug-fuelled duels of the EPO years. In 'Alpe d'Huez', Peter Cossins reveals the triumphs, passion and despair behind the great exploits on the Alpe
