Six climbs to ride from the 2014 Tour de France

Six ascents to pit yourself against from the 101st edition of cycling's greatest race

The beauty of cycling as a professional sport is that its greatest arena is the open road.

The climbs of the Tour de France are cycling’s equivalent of Wembley Stadium or the Maracana – strips of tarmac transformed for one day a year but otherwise open to any rider willing to pit themselves against the same challenges as those faced by the world’s best cyclists.
