The infamous 21 turns of alpe d'huez. Alpe du zwift is a walk in the park compared to this... especially when you do it with 4 hours / 107km / 2000+m in your legs, and that the temperatures go up to 30°

Enjoy! I remember rolling Galibier then up to Huez village and down Col de Sarenne in one day - I needed a big lunch in between. This bra was struggling on turn 19 of 21, must’ve been cramp. 😩

Yes the last climb was tough especially since there was nothing open to buy proper snacks. Ended up eating fruit purées, a sneakers and haribots up Galibier and then a tiny panini on the way back before tackling Alpe d’huez. I was really not expecting this heat at the end though. It was tough but I expected tough ;)
