It all started at a party during the Team Week :
– Tomorow is the last day of the Team Week, let’s ride as much as we can !
– Do you think we can ride 100km of different hills in a day ?
– Let’s do this !!!
So… we did it. We rode all the spots around Les 2 alpes in one day, some hills are 12 miles long, some others are 20% grade and totally crazy. It took us 250Km of car (thanks jon to heal your knee driving us around) and 9 hours to ride these 100km without riding the same hill twice.
We rode many mythic hills like l’Alpe d’Huez (famous for the biking Tour de France) and at 6PM, after 75Km ridden, the heavy rain started. We really wanted to get to 100km, so we kept on ridding under the tempest, and over an inch of water…
Riders that made it to the 100km : Arnaud Blin and Arnaud Debluze. Sylvain Ched couldn’t ride anymore after 83km… Big up to Jonathan Ehm, who couldn’t ride because of a knee injury, and drove us around all day.
We’re leaving you with some pictures of this amazing day.

The final run… under the tempest (15% grade)
sickest trip ever
I’ve never ride a spot of 12km with no stop !!! It’s crazy ! But the tempest was more strong than me !
check the team week vid.
good gravy its the funky shit!
saw l’Alpe d’Huez on TV and dreamed of riding it!
This made for one of the dopest vids ever and that last pic where your battling the rain yet sticking to your guns to finish is amazing.
Sylvain goodjob on even going 83km. I doubt many riders would make it that far under the conditions you guys faced.
so awesome guys !! respect
