Etape 09 - The missing climb!!

I've always wondered why the "Cote d'Aurel" never features on any route profiles of races / sportives which ascend it. They never mention it in La Ventoux Beaumes de Venise and it's not mentioned on this year's Etape profile.

Just so you know, it's in between Montbrun les Bains and Sault. It's after the descent from the Col des Aires (just after the Col de Fontaube) and takes you from just over 500m to 750m over 6km with an average of around 4%. It's certainly not a false flat and compared to some of the other climbs on the route I still think it is significant. Infact, in La Ventoux it's a right b'stard! :lol:
