Haute Route 800km from Geneva to Nice

Registration day at the Haute Route 2012. 800 km from Geneva to Nice with 20,000m of elevation gain along the way.

What an outstanding backdrop for bike building. That’s the big mountains in the background that we climb tomorrow.

 

These races always come with little challenges. I finally found my hotel and after checking in headed up to the room. Check out what I found.

 

Turns out my roomate has a girlfriend along for the ride. Somehow I don’t think this is going to work for a week.

 

A little manipulating and voila much better room.

Off racing tomorrow. 120km and 3 big climbs.
