I’m in. After Bjartolini won the Rapha Festive 500, I’ve kicked myself for not even knowing about that contest and therefore staying indoors eating marzipan soaked in eggnog for the entire Festivus season. Not so for Rapha Rising! 20 times up Alpe d’Huez should do it, and since I will be in France for 6 days, I only need to do it 3,3333 times each day.
After those 6 days I will be traveling for two weeks without a bike (but with a kayak), which will make this .. interesting.
Bjarte is, of course, going for his second victory.
