          Important mention:
Since 1990 to 1995, the Col d'Eze time trial's distance was changed, additional flat kilometers before the final ascent being added. Because of this and lack of information, the time ascents from that period can only be approximated. The all-time record though should belong to the Swiss Tony Rominger with a time around 18:30-18:40 for the 9,6 kms of ascent in 1994.
