This was by far the greatest physical, emotional and mentally demanding challenge I have taken on yet.
Day 3 was particularly grueling in incredible heat, riding over 2 first class cols of 20k+ each and finishing riding up Alpe d’Huez…I ended up in the medical tent.
However, I did show some strength out there on the road…and I am incredibly happy to be an Official Finisher of the hardest, toughest cyclo-sportive EVER… Here are some images…and I will release a blow by blow Daily Diary as soon as I work out how to upload it for you all to read…
There will also be a documentary to be released for international distribution & there are videos & other information at www.hauteroute.org
I am now preparing to climb Mont Blanc…and today put on the crampons and did the Cosmiques Arete…@ 3842 as a refresher since it’s been a little while…more photos to come after I upload the Haute Route diary.
Happy adventuring people!
