So today is the day and I am at the airport waiting patiently for my plane. I have just read an article about next months cycle world championship which take place in Innsbruck Austria. The writer is at pains to stress the men’s race has 5000 meters of ascent and is 265km. Yikes my route is roughly 960km so almost 4 times the distance but at 54000Mt it has over 10 times the ascent. I hope.the author of my guide book has made a mistake or Maybe it won’t be as easy as I thought. Up up up keep going up…..
