Mountain climb, Nice


The Paris - Nice cycle race is one of the most historical cycling events in the professional racing calendar. The inaugural event took place in 1933 and has been running for 75 years. Originally billed as 'The race to the sun' it has also been known as the Paris - Cote d'Azur race in its long history. While the race may not have the same international renown as the legendary Tour de France, it is nevertheless a French institution which often proves to be more exciting than the Tour itself.

The arduous race takes place early in the season and gives fans and team selectors an opportunity to study the form of the best professional cyclists in the world.

The race constitutes 1 prologue and 7 stages and is contested by 23 teams of riders representing various countries and nationalities.

The entire race distance is in the region of 1200 kilometres and begins in Paris towards the beginning of March. The route takes riders through the heart of France with stages passing through several towns and villages before arriving on the Riviera for the most challenging part - a gruelling stage held in the areas surrounding Nice that takes in some of the steepest mountain climbs of the entire event.

The Nice stage is 119 kilometres long in total. The longest climb takes place over 5 kilometres up to Col de la Porte at 1068 metres - a 7.2% gradient and a category 1 classification. The riders drop mercifully back down to the lower reaches of La Trinité at 90 metres before further brutal climbs to La Turbie, 485 metres and Eze at 510 metres.

The race climaxes with a maddening sprint down treacherous roads to the flat and picturesque Promenade des Anglais on Nice's seafront where only the most courageous of the descent have a hope of expending their very last vestiges of energy in a dash for the line and victory.

Distance: 1174 kilometres
Number of Teams: 23
Total Riders: 136
Latest winner: Richie Porte (Australia) riding for Sky (2013)
