Col du Mollard is one of those little known, out of the way passes. It's not particularly high, and because it's below treeline, most of the road is shrouded in trees, and as a result there really is not much scenery you can actually see. Still, it' is one of those 'laugh out loud' roads! It has something like 21 hairpin bends that just keep coming one after another. It has very little traffic, and it's a great place to play around with your mates without bothering anyone, going up the gearbox then backdown, diving into corners, then powering back out to repeat the process. 21 times. It's a bit silly, and that is exactly what makes it so great!

The 2006 Centopassi introduced me to this road, and I've made a point of going back every time I've been nearby, and it's always been a laugh. I've always ridden it downhill, and that's been good fun. It will likely suit some folks better ridden going up hill.
