Sooooo.. I had the intention to do a 185 km ride today, climbing both the Pragelpass as well as the the Iberegg pass.

Riding along the Klöntalersee and enjoying the warm sun was the complete opposite of what happened as soon as I started the descent of the Pragelpass.

Just after the summit:

5 km Further down the road, while a huge hail/rain/thunder/wind storm was taking place..

The temperature dropped about 20 degrees celcius and the road looked like what you can see in the picture above nearly everywhere.
It was almost impossible to brake, but I had to keep descending to search for a warm house or a restaurant. Standing still would only have lead to hypothermia (I was already losing control of my hands and reasoning clearly was hard as well. :| ). I somehow made it to Muotathal, where some people took good care of me, giving me hot soup and chocolate, as well as dry and warm clothes. :beerchug:

thanks Makoy, Always nice pics. and very clean and neat cable work on the handlebar.
so YES WE (YOU) CAN :mrgreen: is what I'll say next time to the local bike shop, showing these pictures and begging them to pay attention when they work on my handlebar and cables, instead of getting shitty long and tangled up cables near the stem... :roll:
