    This race would appear to suit Froome this year, although don't think it's on his agenda.

    He said his first proper race would be Catalunya.

    Yes, but in the very far south, so hopefully the road will be passable.

    I've ridden the Couillole, it's long for P-N, but never that steep. It's a test though, and shifts the balance towards the climbers.

    didn't they try a high climb last year and had to abondon that due to snow ? or am i remembering the wrong race.

    Prob too early to say but has anyone come out and said they are targetting this yet ?

    Tried to ride Col D'Eze last year but came at it from wrong side then got too dark to get down to Nice from Monaco side.
  • Mont Brouilly was on the route last year but cancelled due to snow, so it's back in this year

    It was odd at less than 500m but very exposed -
