My legs needed a day off, but the sirens of the Dauphiné were calling my name.

On a last second whim, I jumped in the car to the base of Col du Granier – the first climb in today’s race.

Yes, the Dauphinée will climb Le Salève up the super steep route from Collonge-Sous-Salève just behind my house.

It is rated category one but features 4 kilometres averaging 12% – with a full kilometre averaging 13%. This is steep!

The Vallée Verte South of Lake Geneva is a beautiful place to get some climbing in while the big Alps are closed. There are quiet, fairly steep climbs everywhere.
