... going to climb 6,000 vertical feet. The majority of this route was going to follow the same route the pro riders were going to be doing in the afternoon.
We had about a 30 min van ride into the town of St Jean de Maurienne. From here we unloaded our vans and began our ride. Since the Tour was coming through the town we had to ride on some sidewalks and dodge pedestrians due to so many road closures. After a super short 1/2-mile warm-up it was time to climb. Today we ...

some amazing views of the surrounding mountains. We had a picnic lunch at the
top and took a good ...
... Les Bains....devour the lot on the drive down.
Anyway, I got to the start line on time - dead straight forward, I found my group easily Unfortunately Chris and I were in different start groups I was in group 3 and Chris was in group 12 with a 1hr start difference.

They let my group go at 7:30am, off we go, 3kms down the ...
