Well they’ve announced it and, with a strange sense of inevitability, I have already emailed the charity I rode for last year to do it again. It looks even tougher that the 2006 edition I failed to finish but I am going to be fitter, stronger and way more determined.
It’s the Pyrenees, it’s the Col de Portet d’Aspet and the Col de Peyresourde plus three other brutes. What’s not to love about the challenge? time to start the training then with the Tour of Flandres sportif in April as one goal then the Etape. Add in regular weekly racing and Sunday training and I’ve already got a busy season lined up.
