- Point of interest
Mythical col from the Tour de France, "La Colombière" is equipped with the Timtoo Timing® system to compare yourself to other racers and improve your performance every time!
The Timtoo Timing© chip is available for rent or for purchase in the Le Grand-Bornand Tourism Office, and functions on all circuits equipped with the same system. Once in your pocket, the chip ensures precision timing via GSM between the marker at the start next to the Bétemps bakery in the village, and the marker at the finish at the top of Col de la Colombière Pass.
- Starting marker: 1st streetlight just past Bétemps bakery in Le Grand-Bornand village, there is a starting line marking on the ground.
- Finishing marker: the sign when you cross Col de la Colombière pass and by checkered road markings.

In addition to the timing equipment, the kilometer marking consists of 11 kilometer markers that indicated the number of km remaining to the pass, the incline % for the upcoming kilometer, and the elevation at the marker itself.

Note:
Only the climb on the Le Grand-Bornand side is equipped, and only the ascent is timed.
The time it takes for the results to be posted on the website www.timtoo.fr takes from 30min to 1hr, provided the network is functioning properly.

Only the rider's best time is posted if the rider timed more than one ascent.
