Can you tell which Tour climb is which from their 3D profiles?

The Tour de France kicks off in just over a week with the Grand Départ in Utrecht. The pinnacle of the WorldTour season, these three weeks in July can define a rider’s career.

Barring crashes upsetting the GC, this year’s race looks set to be a ding dong battle in the mountains due to the relative lack of time trial kilometres. Presuming, of course, that the climbers survive stage four’s cobbles.

Due to the expectation that the climbs will be the deciding factors, we have teamed up with Veloviewer to see how well you know the ascents of the Tour: not from famous past races or historic photographs, but instead from each incline’s profile.

One in particular is pretty obvious, some are far from simple, but so that it’s slightly easier we’ve made the quiz multiple choice. Have a go, and see how many of this year’s Tour de France climbs you can identify.
