Yet one of the most famous of the mountain climbs on the Tour de France, it is certainly not the toughest one. l'Alpe d'Huez has hosted a stage finish almost every year since 1976. The Tour de France first finished a stage on l'Alpe d'Huez in 1952. That stage was won by the Italian cyclist Fausto Coppi. The climb up Alpe d'Huez is 14km at an average gradient of 8% with 21 hairpin bends marked with panels honouring the winners of each stage that has finished there. The fastest climb ever was achieved by Marco Pantani (+ 14-02-2004) in 1995: 36'50".
