What with 2013 being the 100th anniversary of the Tour de France expectations for the Etape du Tour, a one day cyclosportif that follows the Tour de France stage route, were running high. Would it be the double ascension of l'Alpe d'Huez, never really on the cards managing 5000+ cyclists doing the same climb twice. Or was it to be the Ogre of Provence, Mont Ventoux? After last year's brutal alpine stage, which took in the Madeleine followed by Glandon and Croix de Fer before a final climb to la Toussuire, anything seemed possible.
1h11 for the climb is about a minute off my best. I tried to pace myself a bit on the lower section to keep a similar VAM on the upper Coq which is v.steep in places. Pretty spent at the col but a fast ride down.
