Climb rating Aubisque difficulty 8/10 (after Gourette) picturesque scenery 10/10 (after Gourette). Rd surface good all the way. <br>\nBasic 7% gradient and forest scenery from Laruns to Bonne Eaux. Harder short section thru the square at Bonne Eaux, then a RHT thru the &acirc;arch&acirc;. This section wasn&acirc;t too hard, though got tougher towards the end and tunnel before Gourrette. Threw empty isostar bottle at Gourrette and used water only for the last 6 k. Not too hard after Gourette (on water only form here) as wind helped cooling and only 5 k at a reason gradient managed most seated in 27 and then 25/23 over the last 0.5 k to finish. Knew where finish was after rounding bar/restaurant with 1.5 to go. Bar/Rest could only be spotted from ~3. k marker. Caught and passed a Dutchman with ~2 k to go. Then the sheep. Top of Aubisque had the giant yellow, green and poka dot bikes.
