Bjarne Riis eliminated all his rivals for the 1996 Tour de France yellow jersey with an absolutely mutant performance on the Hautacam climb in stage 16. Riis broke away from the other GC hopefuls with a series of accelerations, feints and surges at the beginning of the climb, eventually riding about 6 of the 7.9km climb solo (8% gradient). Riis’ record on the Hautacam still stands to this day and is the second highest level climbing performance in Tour de France history, as measured by VAM.
Riis eventually gained just under 2 minutes to 2nd place Abraham Olano, sealing the yellow jersey and breaking the streak of Miguel Indurain from 1991-1996.
