A trip around France
Movie Ranking: five / five
Thank you for not erasing Lance from History of Cycling … Drive me nuts
when see all those videos and magazines with him being cut or deleted like
he never lived and cycled.
Another great video. Cheers guys
Additional nice tdf climbs: madeleine, croix de fer, glandon.
Maybe bikeradar could make a video about most difficult climbs ever in
races: for example angliru, mortirolo, zoncolan
Yowser 2 out of the top 5 in one ride! #EDT2014
the Puy de Dome is a really cool climb and great mountain top finish.
Andy didnt get the yellow jersey after the Galibier stage in 2011. He got
it the day after up to Alpe D’ Huez
Lance is fake, and as a fake should be erased.
Why did you refer to Armstrong as the “one and only” after the sheer
destruction him and others have done to the sport we love
awesome, spectacular scenery
So the Galibier at 2600+meters is up there. But what about the Col de la
Bonnette? 2800+ meters! The highest tarmacked road in Europe, climbed from
an altitude of 1200 meters from the West from Jausiers, a climb length of
23Km and a total climb of one vertical mile. Ridden in 1993 on the way to
Isolate 2000, when Robert Millar crossed the summit first. Paul Sherwen
commentated that this climb was the worst he’d ever seen in the Tour. It
was preceded that year by the Col d’Izoard and Col du Vars in the same
+Roger Otto Should we then erease the ’90 & ’00 of cycling?
Col du Galibier could be considered one part of a larger climb in fact. If
approached from the North, you have to climb over the Telegraph first
before a mere 10 minute descent is followed by a long drag intro to the
steeper slopes toward the top of Galibier making a long ongoing ride. The
southern approach requires either a climb of Col du Lauteret from Briancon
or the West. So it’s a monster.
who’s Mr 60? Bjarne Riis is Mr 60%! Putting Hautecam 1st is a little
controversial – Mt Ventoux for me.
I can’t wait for this year’s Tour :)
Why the hell there are naked people everywhere?
PS here I am explaining to my 10 year old son the beauty and tradition of
the alpine climbs, as we watch this video, when he says “isn’t that
Pharmstrong” and “why is he called Mr 60%”? And so begins the shameful
explanation of LE Dopage as applied to pro cycling. Pity.
epic climbs ….
Great job, keep up the good work.
Anyone spot a certain Mr Boardman, oh Christian Vandevelde…and many
drug-infueled cyclists. Another thing came to mind. Andy Schleck looked god
dam TOO ripped…1 can only wonder… Im sure he’s undecided on the correct
gear to use this year..as he aint shown nothing.
When you’ve been cycling for years – you can just tell…
alp duez has to been number 1!
no more naked mens butts!
