2010 Tour de Romandie Stage 1

10

Steep road up to Col d'Aiguillon

Hopefully, the video expresses how much fun we had on this ride.

A very fun day watching the Tour de Romandie. To get to the race route Eric and I first cycled up the beautiful, quiet, and steep Col de l’Aiguillon. Yet another great Jura climb.

The top is on the French Swiss border and there are still tank defences and bunkers – I imagine left over from World War 2.

The climb is part of the Swiss National Cycling Route 7 – and kindly announces how long and how much climbing will be involved:

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.

  1. Great Video Will. The TV managed to somehow miss the crash on top of Bulles. The weather looks a whole lot better than last year… I remember sheltering from the rain in the old shed on the opposite side of the road that you can see in your pics.

  2. super ! la vidéo rend très bien l’atmosphère du sommet, avec tous les coureurs qui s’arrachent pour basculer plus vite dans la descente…il ne manque que la vidéo embarquée avec Eric qui suit le peloton ;-)

  3. Footon-servetto a New Pro cycling team -formerly fuji- servetto .

    Put “footon cycling” in a google image search and you will see the ugliest team kit photo …. ;)

  4. Excellent la victoire sur le fil de Will devant les deux échappées !
    Pas de panneau au sommet de l’Aiguillon on dirait. Et les 610m sur 7 kms c’est la montée finale pour le Suchet ?

  5. Bast,

    Non, il n’y a pas de panneau pour Aiguillon. Je cherchais partout!

    Je crois que le 610 sur 7 kms est pour Aiguillon – c’est le sens de la route national 7 – et Suchet n’est pas sur la route 7.

  6. Another fun video! Yep… that’s really not a good color for a team kit! There’s a full team picture of this somewhere I’ve seen lately. It just doesn’t look good. But your pictures are awesome… great shots again of a race and it was cool how you put it all together in the video. What’s a FOD?
