Today I climbed the “Classic” Col du Joly.
Over 140 kilometres with about 3,400 metres climb (+11,000 feet) in a heat wave.
Woohooo! I cross the finish line at today’s Tour of Switzerland well before the pros – my first stage victory!
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.

Another great day watching the Dauphinée Libéré.
Today the Dauphinée climbed the Salève, the super steep climb behind my house.
Cycling up Alpe d’Huez? There is more to do than just the usual Tour de France route.
Wow, I am tired!
Attracting several thousand riders, the Time-Megeve cyclosportive is one of the bigger cycling events in France.
I am making good use of the mountain behind me so far this year.
