Commentary from Marion Rousse

A gentle start on the Alsace plain before tackling three of the toughest passes in the Vosges (Petit Ballon, Platzerwasel, Grand Ballon), which come one after another and should establish a very clear hierarchy. Rather than descending again after the final climb, the route will follow the ridge line towards the Markstein, where a great climber will be crowned.
