Sportive Season 2012
As we sail past our 80th Sportive in nine years, we've
decided for this year, we're going to slow down a tad! We've
driven over 80,000 miles in the last nine seasons so this year are
staying a little closer to home.
In the left panel you can see the years and the races in
which we've taken part displayed in
chronological order. On the right the events are broken down by
category with my beloved classics at the head of the list closely
followed by the UCI Golden Bike Series.
After taking the leaders jersey in the
2011 Trophee Passion Championship, we're
going to spend a little more time doing the odd-jobs that need doing
around the home and chasing some Strava Challenges around the island!
However, we still have some events to tackle.
First off is the introduction of some new members to La
Coulianiase. A quick trip close to home, just down the road at Le
That's quickly followed by the Tro Bro Leon. I've
tried it twice already and have yet to finish! Third time lucky,
Straight after that it's a trip to the UK and my first ever
sportive over there, the Gran Fondo Mario Cipollini. Cheddar Gorge
and all that.
IN June, it'll be another trip to the Bernard Hinault,
again, it's less than an hour away and always a good event. It's
1300 metres of climbing, yet lacks a significant hill. There's
just no flat bits!
THe middle part of the year's undecided, but we will
probably finish off with the usual season ender, the Jean-Cyril Robin.
Whatever you choose to do, or wherever you choose to do it,
(try something different this year) have a happy, safe and above all an enjoyable 2011 season.
See you on the road somewhere...
