Ok Ok I realise its stupidly early however we need to start thinking about discussing the issue because early planning is essential
Talking with a few of you and you’ve found your season drifting with no major challenge. Unlike the previous year when quite a few of us had La Marmotte to maintain focus
This post is to open discussion, I must say I’m not sure where I’ll be work wise so availability could be my issue !! IMHO I think taking part as a sizeable group is what makes the trip, so where do we look to go ??
I’ve only done La Marmotte and Etape in 2009 and Maratona dles Dolomites 2010 and weighing all the pros and cons my vote would go to the Maratona which is on Sunday 10th July 2011 Anyone any other events to go in pot ? Bear in mind its the centenary of the Tour de France first use of Galibier in 2011 so wouldn’t be surprised if Etape also visits the Alps next year. Not suggesting Etape (far too expensive ) only mention cos it could get very very busy !
We also need to include the ‘usual suspects’ from Climb on Bikes in our discussions
Any views ??
