For the first time in the Tour de France of 2015, but already famous. The image of the road which climbs in 18 sharp hairpins againts a rock wall to the village of Montvernier is really iconic. The steep route has been there since 1938. During the Tour de France of 2015 no public was admitted. Les Lacets are not only too narrow, but with the public it becomes far too dangerous.
