August 18, 2008 - 3.0
Update for August 08.
I was so looking forward to riding this road again as it was one of my favourites of my 05 trip. However, theyve ruined is with roadworks for the time being. The Esterri DAneu side is seeing major changes like 4 lane bridges and dual carriageway (i think)
The top part of the mountain is also seeing improvements but I dont think theyll manage to straighten too much of it out so it will hopefully retain its character.
Stelios - theyve now ruined the surface down towards Vielha. (see the pics with the gravel!!)
(Avoid for 09 and maybe 10)
