Route du Sud - Col de Couraduque

Stage 4 of the 2016 Route du Sud had a stage finish on Col de Couraduque. The stage was 185km with 5000 metres of climbing. Before the finishing climb the riders cross Col du Tourmalet and Col des Borderes. Here are some photos I made 4km from the finish. It was a super hard race in terrible weather conditions. Cold rain and even snow on Col du Tourmalet. Of 126 staters only 95 finished.
