The Simon Ker award for best ride on an inappropriate bike
The Côte de Hinton
At approximately 700m long and an average of 11%, the Côte de Hinton isn't over quite quickly enough. Steep from the off, the road ramps up to around 16% before the gradient relaxes for the right-hander that leads to the finish line. The best riders each year go under two and a half minutes, with anything under three minutes a handy time.
