Cent Cols Challenge photostory
Billed as the ‘ultimate sportive’, the inaugural Cent Cols Challenge saw 22 riders complete a gruelling but truly epic route from Thonon les Bains to Annecy, across the French Alps. Taking place between the 14th and 24th September 2009, it required each and every rider to complete 106 Alpine cols in 10 days with over 40,000 metres of climbing and almost 2,100 kilometres travelled.
Further reports and interviews will follow soon.
