Over recent years, one of the most memorable solo stage victories was a finish in Andorra in torrential rain, by Tom Dumoulin – stage 9, 2016. He went on to win the Giro the following year. Ride much of that stage between our hotels and conquer two great climbs along the way. The rugged beauty of the part of the Pyrenees is mesmerising, over 100km and 2,000m of vertical ascent for the day. Skip one of the climbs for something shorter.
