Quest for the Yellow Jersey 

In tribute to the beautiful Pyrene goddess, Hercules, a hero renowned for his courage, gave her name to these majestic mountains: the Pyrenees. Conquer their summits, where other gods—the gods of cycling—have accomplished such legendary feats. Tourmalet, Aspin, Aubisque… So many Tour de France yellow jerseys have jockeyed for a position on these dizzying peaks! Mount Canigou and its breathtaking views are certain to set your head spinning. It’s your turn to take your place in the epic history of the Pyrenees!
