Hors Catégorie (HC) is a French term used in stage bicycle races to designate a climb that is “beyond categorization”. The term was originally used for those mountain roads where cars were not expected to be able to pass.
Categories are defined by their steepness and length, the HC climb is the most difficult type of climb in the race.
To highlight this years’ Tour we created a set of four limited edition prints following the most extreme climb from each of the Hors Catégorie stages endured by the riders taking part. #TdF
