SRAM Tour de Ranges Sportive – New Zealand

I have just entered the SRAM Tour de Ranges sportive near Auckland – New Zealand. The 110 km route does not sound too challenging but I will have only landed the day before from Europe. Perhaps I can have a snooze half way round and be picked up by the broom wagon.

Interestingly the organisers state that the highlight of the ride is Snake Hill and I quote “Although this hill is only 920 meters long it has an average gradient of 7.4%. Interestingly, the infamous Alpe d’Huez climb in France is 13 kilometres long with an average gradient of 8.1%” Not sure they really compare but it should be fun.
