On the way up.....

Second stage of the SAAB SALOMON AVALANCHE TROPHYwill take place on June 13th and 14th into the Vallonrd resorts located in ANDORRA.
Just to remind you what's the Descent Marathon; it is a pure MTB condensed demanding strengh, endurance and dexterity but also recklessness and trajectories skills.
The 400 down hill marathon racers will rush down from Pic Cubil at 2350 m during about half an hour; to reach the little pretty village of la Massana. The finish is really fun you will pass into a tunnel ... don't forget to bend one's head.

Bikeradar Live

Rob Wilmott takes on the mighty Graham Obree

"Take a look at my moment of (short-lived) glory!

That was Saturday's afternoon session when it was kinda windy. I didn't take part in Sunday morning's hour session when the wind wasn't quite so strong, so that's my excuse. That and being on a standard road bike with no tri bars over a 2.5 mile lap. Oh, and the lack of speed... Couldn't ride on Sunday as I took part in the WattBike Challenge (1450 watts peak, 10.35 secs for 200m), then raced for over 2 hrs with Stephen Roche, which was a lot of fun. My legs still hurt :o)

This is the final result of the Hot Laps - I think I was good for 4th really!

Obree was a star though, and thoroughly great bloke!

Robin ;o)"
