Alphonse Steinés and the Col du Tourmalet.

The team that had formed around Henri Desgrange at the newspaper L’Auto in the formative years of the Tour de France included the journalist Alphonse Steinés.

Alphonse Steinés had persistently tried to persuade his editor to go deeper into the mountains. In search of a landscape and terrain difficult enough to require a super-human effort, just to finish the day’s stage. 

He found what he was looking for on the Tourmalet.
