I had the pleasure of riding Alpe D’Huez last summer, and watching that video makes my heart explode. Granted, it was about 150 degrees and I was fighting to get around a barrage of mountain bikes spinning at 4mph, but in any case, it’s not an easy climb. Rubiera is the real hero here; the hardest part of the climb by far is the first 4km or so. He’s got to be the best climbing domestique ever, that guy needs a win or two. Anyhow, thanks for the inspiration!
