François Faber was the first rider to cross the pass in 1911 and since then, it has been part of the route 33 times. It was last part of the 2000 Tour, (13th stage) when Pascal Hervé was the first to summit, in 2015 the mountain was again visited by Tour de France at Stage 17 this was won by Simon Geschke.
Col d'Allos reviews
Excellent for bikers. However the road is very narrow, drivers of caravans and trucks need to be very careful. Need to be excellent drivers. more »
The road to the pass is an adventure itself, narrow, bumpy and wonderful views, which try to distract you from the road. The refuge at the pass offers lovely food, also a nice walk to the Rochegrand..... more »
A great climb. Don't go over the edge though...300 m drop.😱
Road actually very narrow, we took it yesterday Sunday, camping because, with the storms it was superb. During the week and in the middle of the tourist season, do not do camping car. 😉
