Pic de Nore
The pic de Nore (Occitan: Nòra) at 1211 metres is the highest point in the Montagne Noire, on the border of the Aude and Tarn departments, near to the Parc naturel régional du Haut-Languedoc in southern France. The Arnette and Clamoux rivers both have their sources on the slopes.
The main feature of the summit is the 102 metre transmission tower, which broadcasts:
- FM : 4 transmitters at 80 kW PAR.
- Analogue TV: 1 transmitter in VHF at 100 kW PAR / 2 transmitters in UHF at 56 kW PAR / 3 transmitters in UHF at 160 kW PAR / 1 transmitter in UHF at 205 kW PAR.
- Digital TV: 5 transmitters in UHF at 8 kW PAR.
Since 2002 the summit is the finishing line for two timed climbs from Mazamet and Villegly (flat until Cabrespine).
The current record holder for both routes is Michel Ambrosini:
- Mazamet (via Pradelles): 52'30 "(28.57 km/h)
- Cabrespine: 40'52 "(25.69 km/h)
The climb from Cabrespine is 17.5 km long with a 5.2% average gradient.
The climb from Mazamet is 17 km long with a 5.7% average gradient.
The climb from Mazamet (via Pradelles) is 25 km with a 3.9% average gradient.
The climb up the slopes of Mas Cabardès, is shorter, at 15.1 km with a 6.1% average gradient but with some very difficult passages over 13%.
The Tour de France passed over the summit for the first time on Stage 15 of the 2018 edition.
