Flashback: Chavanel on the Col de la Ramaz, 2003

2003 Dauphine Libere: "Baker boy" Sylvain Chavanel (Brioches la Boulangere) climbs the Col de la Ramaz.  It was 7 years ago and the climb was also featured in the Tour that year.  It is back today and could be where the fireworks commence, though perhaps not among the top favorites for the overall.  French riders and teams are out to prove something this year, with some dropped from the ProTour and looking for new sponsors.  (Bouygues is in talks with La Poste (the French post office) who may take over next year as title sponsor)  A more experienced Chavanel starts the day in yellow.  -Pete
