La Marmotte 2008 Preview

La Marmotte (along with l’Etape du Tour) are probably the most famous and two of the most challenging Cyclosportives in France.

I’ll be riding it this Saturday: 174 kilometres and +5,000 metres of ascent (+17,000 feet). Three epic, beautiful, and legendary climbs with the easiest being Alpe d’Huez (seriously).

Le Dauphiné and Col du Granier

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.
