La Resistance sportive

Preparation for the 2016 sportive began many months beforehand in readiness for the 7+ hours the rider would spend in the saddle!

The route through the mountains was a combination of on and off road cycling which at times involved cycling on gravel tracks through the Alps. The rider wanted to undertake the challenge again in September 2017 so we began planning in November 2016 working on his specific objectives and goals. He is fitter than at this point last year, has a higher FTP and is 9kgs lighter, so it's onwards and upwards!
