  1. Ok Tour did let the Madeleine climb officially start at 17.1 km from the top (I guess to have a higher average gradient). I just wondered because I clearly remembered to have manually stopped a time of under 1h. And Bahrain really started to pace up right at this point. And to Col de la Loze and people wondering of no bigger time gaps, from the viewpoint of pure altitude gain it's quite comparable to Mount Ventoux etc.; (what makes it so "special" is the irregularity in the last 6K and the height of 2300m).
