Today I cycled 205km and climbed 2700m. I don't know why I did it. But I did it. And I did it well. Side by side with a dear friend, we made it in less than 8 hours (plus one hour of breaks), making this the fastest I've ever gone in the mountains. My jersey got noticed, and I liked when someone said: you do know it's going uphill right now, don't you? That stone was well deserved.
Flapping in the wind. After climbing the Col de Lauteret and the Col du Galibier earlier, we were treated to some stunning descents back to Bourg d’Oisans.

Today we really made the most of #switchbacksaturday !
Our loop around Lago Speccheri took in incredible views of classic Dolomiti ranges; small towns; turquoise water + of course many switchback corners, both up & down!
I'll put more photos up after I've had some pasta & an ice cold @birramoretti!
Oh, and we passed through the town of @missitaliatrentinoaltoadige 😊
Once again a huge thank you to @jeredgruber + @ashleygruber who really sold this location to us through their wonderful photography!
Can't share what I've been working on these last few days but can share even more photos of Italy. Sorry about that.
I unexpectedly have some free days at the end of August (28/29/30/31). Need some assistance on a shoot or want to collaborate on something? I'm all ears.
Kicking off #switchbacksaturday on our highlight of day 2 in the Alps. The Col de Sarenne. After the climb of Alpe d’Huez, it was nice to get back onto quiet roads, open landscapes and amazing views. The Sarenne did not disappoint. The descent was super fun.

This was the highlight of the day yesterday. A 4km gravel road sitting 1300m high, directly above Bourg d’Oisans, looking directly at the #Switchbacks of Alpe D’Huez. It comes after the climb of Villard-Reymond, and what follows is the the most amazing descent down the stunning balcony road, into Bourg d’Oisans. Just beautiful.
I’ve been riding in Switzerland for 35 years but had never been much in the German speaking part of the Jura mountains. Until last year and that day with @saaal74 in the Baselbiet area… and now I just want to go back to keep exploring this beautiful region.
