After two days of Alpe d''Huez, Telegraphe, Glandon and Croix de la Fer this was our finale.

After a hard winters training and 10 years on the bike, this was the hardest day I''ve ever had. Climbing from La Chambre is slightly shorter (20k) but steeper , averaging at about 8%. Maybe it was the heat, very likely the altitude, but the last 8 k was absolutely dreadful. The views are stunning, climbing past the ski resorts incredible, but why couldn''t I breathe?. I did pass someone in the last km, but I''m never climbing this again. My body just won''t take it. Sorry to sound a pussy but it was awful and took 3 hours to recover.
