Important mentions:
       This is not an all-time top, the time ascents of the 90's not being included.
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.
       The 2007 ascent took place in a road stage and not during an individual time trial.
