in the Alps
Up the tempo!
With the improving weather we have been out and about on our bikes a lot in the last few weeks, and all the Alpine Cols coaches have ridden multiple thousands of kilometres in training since January in order to accompany you this summer. The first sportive already done, we are looking forward to the next one in two weeks time: the Raid du Bugey on April 30th.

We are pleased to announce another important enhancement to our support during the Haute Route: a bike concierge service. All our Directeur Sportif and Super-domestique clients will be able to leave their bikes with us on arrival, to be washed and cleaned. If necessary we will also take your bike over to Mavic for you for any mechanical adjustments.

In other news, we have agreed a new partnership with BV Sport, the inventors and first patent holders of calf-length compression socks used by elite sportsmen to improve veinous return and hence speed recovery. Partner to the French Cycling Federation, BV Sport equips over 230 World and Olympic champions in various disciplines. All our coaches have been using their products for some years and have now been provided with the latest Pro-Recup socks and compression shorts. We will have these avilable for sale to guests during our training camps.
