Hey after a quick sleep over in Albertville and an F1 continental breakfast, we started ridding through the valley on desolate side highway roads in the crisp french morning!
After som un-eventfull flat ridding, we stoped near the bottom of the Col du Glandon for a supermarket lunch!
Right after we assaulted, what has becomed the most challenging climb I have even ridden.
RYTHUM RYTHUM RYTHUM!
A look back at the terrain conquered!
So close to the top and sucking in thin air! As I stared at the road in front of me, I could, painted on the road things like JAN JAN JAN or CONTADOR and other famillar names who climbed this hill some years ago!
Whats that saying a picture is worth a thousand words?
Now the hard part, going down the chilly downhills.
I snapped a picture of a beautifull lake!
After some more ridding and climbing, we got very close to our destination!
Heres a view from the top, of the in-famous Alpe d’Huez and its 21 switchbacks!
Batman and Robin releaved that the climbing is done, for today
Once we got to the top, we went for a run and checked into our accom, went shopping, supper, ect. The atmoshpere up here is great, theres people on bikes everywhere and theres a pretty big expo with all sorts of gadgets!
Anyway, im racing on Thursday, so now its all about staying loose, staying off my feet and eating well!
