Climb was for the first time in the Tour the France of 2020 in the 12th stage. It is categoriesed as a second category climb. Laurent Jalabert discovered it at that time and it could cause some damage. "It's steep, a nice climb! There is a 17% ramp at the end, they will have a lot of fun."
In that 12th stage Marc Hirschi was part of the decisive attacks over the penultimate ascent of the day, Cote de la Crouz du Pey, that formed the main late-race breakaway. However, it was his powerful move over the Suc au May that saw him ride away from his breakaway companions, Marc Soler (Movistar) and Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe), and then solo the final 25km into Sarran to take his the stage victory.
