A brilliant weekend.  The ride was everything I expected brutal enough to make me realise how strong the pros must be, but with stunning scenery all around to take the edge off the agony!  Being in the fourth starting pen was a great help.  I could have done without the intense heat on the final climb up to La Toussuire though!!  A fantastic challenge, which I am very proud to have completed.



That was without doubt the most utterly staggeringly brutal thing I have ever done!



The heat on the Gladon was dreadful, had a great day though and want to go back next year- so put me at the top of your list for the entries!!
