... wonderful villages up near the top that mainly service the ski traffic in winter and summer hikers. Two km from the summit of Col du Mollard is one such village, Albiez-Montrond. It can been seen in the pic from the summit view and where I filled my bidons.

I descended the other side of the climb and started with and Italian rider who I left behind a few k's down. He caught up at the bottom in the town of St Jean and said in broken ...

I was building up some pretty good speed of 40+ km/h and could have gone faster but was tentative because of the wet roads. I passed through a few tunnels that were a nice break from ...

... or so we were overtaking all the cycles, we climbed with them to 8500 ft, then descended with them the other side, the problem is we were marginally quicker than them on the uphill but alot of them were quicker than us on some of the down hills! Of our 45 miles, we were with them for 40!! but we got there slowly!

The both of us ...
