today i just got from Sault to Chalet Renard. Was already 80km in our last training this week, so had enough climbing!
Monday i did 1h46 from Bedoin with very bad legs (arrived sunday after 11hours drive) and very hot weather. I liked Gorges de la Nesque, Col de Murs and Col de la Ligne more!

Took a while to get uploaded but this is from 2 weeks ago:
YouTube: La Pyreneenne Cyclosportive 2011 in HD
includes a lot of the same roads as yesterday's stage in the Tour: l'Hourquette d'Ancizan, Col du Tourmalet, and Col d'Aspin.

Come on TP, it hasn't been that bad. It's only water and not even frozen most of the time! :wink:

Glad you were able to get out. I myself also enjoyed the stellar conditions and raced the Phillip Island ITT. 4 laps of the MotoGP course - 8th in A grade with my best TT power numbers to date and 33 seconds faster than last year.

Been shocking this way :( being ill not helping either.

Hit Benwerrin and a crazy little hill in Lorne town, 900m, 10.5% ave gradient :shock: 170km clocked up, with the Warny coming up methinks that's going to be a route I'll be doing a few more times.


Congrats on the ITT result :thumbup: saw Shane's time, frightening!

Shane will be rocking on a new Malvern Star TT frame shortly too, so will it be interesting to see how much faster he can go. 8)

It rained all day, then suddenly cleared up late afternoon. Nice views of the mountains on the way back.

Beautiful pictures.


If you can - please post where they were taken - it would add a lot to the value of the photos!
