2014 goal is La Marmotte (both Petra and I have signed up) - anyone else heading over to France for a 5K vertical day incl. Col du Glandon, Col du Galibier, and Alpe d'Huez fun ride???
Wow.. thanks Joe, would love to hear some more of your experiences from last year - and even better if you do repeat this year.
Let's cross fingers we can soon start training outside... I'm NOT up for anything remotely close to bringing a bike out in this weather ;)
What an event! You guys will do fine on your new bikes:-)
Yeah, gooooood selling job Dan... Petra LOOOOVES her new ride!!! ;)
Hey Joe, have your summer travel plans firmed up some? Could be fun with more BCC riders on La Marmotte!
See you tomorrow morning?
Hi Joe, I looked around the Marmotte and Look website for the 'trial and buy' bike rental options but can't find anything. Do you recall where you got the info, that would be perfect to avoid hauling my own bike across the Atlantic (I'll be in Denmark 2 weeks before that, so no desire to carry that around).
See you in the weekend!
Awesome, awesome ride in France this past weekend - La Marmotte is truly EPIC!!!!
I finished in 9:13... 34 min past the gold-time - but I made ALL the rookie mistakes one could even start to imagine;
NEXT TIME I'll surely make a few less of those mistakes, but then likely some other ones! ;)
PS: Thanks to Joe for the tip on the demo Look bike, awesome ride and great convenience to not have to haul our own bikes across the pond!
See ya back in TO soon, I'm flying home tomorrow!
