The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

There was a group of seven riders from Belgium that had done the Grande Fondo de Marmotte, which is a one day 175km ride through 3 Cols and culminating with Aple D'Huez.
