After 7 days, 700 Km and 19,000 metres of positive ascent, we have finished the great "Route des Grandes Alpes"
We did it! We have finished this great alpine route, being aware that we were doing one of the best road bike integral traverse in the world.
What a super stage! The longest of the route, the one that has more slope and the one that has led us to cross more mountain passes.
Here we start the southern part of the French Alps, and to celebrate it and contemplate a certain change of landscape, we have climbed the Col de l'Izoard (2,360m).
We started with some pretty flat kilometers, which do not go badly to rest from so many mountain passes and so much accumulated unevenness.
The first part of the stage has been relatively smooth, and has allowed us to gain altitude while passing through the ski resorts of Tignes and Val d'Isere.
