Holme Moss is a moor, it’s part of the Pennines, a range of hills in the centre of North England. A popular ascent in the Tour of Britain, it goes by the moniker Le Col de Moss. Stage 2 of the 2014 will see riders climb the road over a distance of 4.7 kilometres in the direction Derbyshire – the grades are 7.3% (average) and 14% (maximum). The summit is near Holme Moss Transmitting Station, the highest station of its kind in the UK.
Only a few kilometres before the finish a short climb appears, in only 800 meter the road raises from an height of 42 meters to 136 meters. The average gradient of 11% is not that scary, but the 33% steepest part of this road is something else. From the top it is only 5 kilometres to the finish.
