Don’t worry, only one climb today. It does happen to be the LONGEST climb in France.
Here is a preview of stage two of the upcoming July 2008 Lost Boys Tour d’Enfer.
Day 2: La Clusaz to Bourg-Saint-Maurice
The Stage: Approximately 92 kilometres (57 miles); Ascent: 3,030 metres (9,940 feet)
Here is stage one of the upcoming July 2008 Lost Boys Tour d’Enfer. A trip organized by my friend Leslie that will include people from the USA, Canada, France, Turkey, Germany, and Switzerland.
