Browsing: Cyclosportives

A very cool feature of the Tour de l’Ain is that for three of the stages they run same-day amateur cyclosportives on the exact same route as the pros.

Philippe and I have ridden together twice now. Today, and once with light hail. We have agreed that our third time must include some sun.

This cyclosportive has become one of the most famous events on the European amateur cycling calendar. In part due to the beautiful surroundings, and in part due to the challenging course – including 5 passes above 2,000 metres.
