The first day we arrive in Les 2 Alps under a huge storm but we are still optimistic for the next days: forecasts are good. In the morning i wake up early and a blue sky greets me. Luckly i can leave with my bicycle without fear the rain. Today's program is quite ambitious: get to Burg d'Oians, climb Col du Glandon (1928m), col du Telegraphe (1566m) and col du Galibier (2642m), finishing my tour with the ascent to Les 2 Alps. At the and of the day i have to call to be rescued at the feet of the last climb because i'm too tired.
On saturday there is the race and i follow it with the car to support my brother. At the end he wins, fighting until the last meter with Dekker, a strong Duchman.
After celebrating his victory on sunday i'd like to climb the mythical Alp d'Huez but the weather, gorgeous until now, has changed. I have just the time to get down and up from Les 2 Alps before the rain comes. Luck has protected us giving us a window of sunshine between days of bad weather, so we get home pleased and satisfied: Tony for the victory, Claudia for skiing, I, Roberto and Fernando for pedalling on mythical and beautiful roads... my promise is to return and conquer those not addressed peaks.
