Tour de France Stage 13 – Chamrousse and my birthday

30 Jul

image

Stage 13 of this year’s TdF travelled south from Saint-Etienne to Chamrousse – a summit finish southeast of Grenoble in the Belledonne mountain range.  The climb is roughly 21km long and very regular on a wide, well surfaced road. The resort was used for the 1968 winter olympics and many of the Olympic ski runs are still in use during the winter.

In contrast to this ascent, there is a more taxing route up.  The Col Luitel joins the Romanche Valley with Chamrousse 1750. The road is narrow and poorly paved.  You climb over 800m in 8km and the gradient only gets steeper as you climb.  The Luitel brings you out about 6km from the summit of Chamrousse 1750.

image

For this year’s Tour de France tour, we took the guests up the Luitel to watch the stage finish.  The day was superb with fantastic weather.  Watching the finish on Chamrousse was much different than AdH the year before. The crowds were less and you were able to ride unhindered almost to the finish.  We were stood just before Nibali’s attack. He looked very composed in comparison to the others – riding closed mouthed and seemingly putting nothing through the pedals!

Chamrousse is my favourite climb and without a doubt the best descent in the area. Come ride it with us on the Tour of the Oisans!

Prompt D927 Steel Frame

27 Jul

image

I’ve just finished the build of my steel Prompt D927. The bike was finished with a Dura Ace 7800 groupset and Deda components. 

The frame rides superbly.  The ride is much less harsh than carbon and thus is suited to longer rides. I plan to take the bike round Italy and Spain next spring.

The added weight off the bike is not noticable perhaps due to the increased comfort. I even managed to set a pb up Villard Reculas on its maiden voyage.  The frame is responsive out of the saddle and very solid going downhill.  Having ridden the bike a few times, I’m starting to wonder what all the hype is about carbon!

Cape to Cape Training day 2 technical training on Les Deux Alpes

22 Jun

Took my son Zac up to Les 2 Alpes for the opening weekend of the mountainbiking lift season for 2014. I felt slightly conspicuous with my short travel carbon prompt p241 29 er amongst all the long travel downhill bikes.

image

I did at least wear a full face helmet / baggy shorts and body armour. 

image

I soon found out the bike handled just fine and we were soon passing our longer travelled friends. The tight switchbacks were a little harder on the 29 er but the bike and myself handled them fine.

image

It was also great following Zac down the trails. He has a real style now going airborne at every available moment.
