Early success in Alpine sportives
The cycling season in the Alps has well and truly begun and we are now in our fourth week of training camps. We have been blessed with wonderful weather and Olivier has already cycled the equivalent of one and a half times the Haute Route!

Our guests have already ridden two of our favourite Alpine sportives, the Time Megève and the Morzine Haut Chablais. Both of these include climbs from the Haute Route and are a great experience. Once again our ladies have been successful, with a podium and first place for Amanda Mikalachki in the W3 category in the 135km, 3900m Morzine sportive. WELL DONE Amanda!
If you live in the UK look out for the next edition of Cycling Plus magazine, due to be published near the end of the month. There will be a long article on our official Haute Route training camp, with some fantastic pictures taken by Manu Molle.

We still have places for our Tour de France week 19-25 July: come ride the climbs and watch the tour with Alpine Cols! Reply to this email if interested.
