We join them during the ride, stop at key check points of the climb and follow their progress to the top.

They all share their impressions, Rolland tells about his famous victory two years ago, while Virenque gives Remy the benefit of his years at the top of the sport.

Oakley teamed up with Eurosport to launch a search for two fit and motivated cyclists to "Conquer the Road" to celebrate the 100th edition of the Tour de France in 2013.

Fans across Europe visited a digital hub developed by Oakley - conquertheroad.eurosport.com - and registered their profile.

Using their own social media networks via Twitter, Facebook and Google+ the fans then had to secure as many "kilometres" as possible through votes.

The more “kilometres” they earned the higher up the leaderboard they went.
