Alpe d Huez Cycling Challenge – and the winner is ….

Who was the fastest of our frame builders in the Alpe d Huez challenge?

Having spent a couple of days riding with the guys, Ricky, JakeRichard and Phil and their bikes we thought we would have a bit of fun and make the challenge a bit tougher by adding in an extra climb in the morning, so having dropped the guys in Valloire for the obligatory coffee Phil led them off to tackle the Col du Galibier.

It was a lovely day but still cold on the top so after a quick pause for photos we headed down to the Lautaret for a picnic lunch before heading on to the Alpe for the Challenge.

With everyone playing it cool they set off together but it wasn’t long before the heads went down and legs got turning.

All the guys were of course amazing, Phil / Libertine brought up the rear with Jake / Rusby in third, Richard / Craddock arrived second leaving first up and winner of the challenge, Ricky / Feather in a pretty cool 48mins or there abouts – congratulations!
