2015 Tour of Grand Cols (Samoens - Vinzier (Loop ride))

 

Ride Data: ... check out the excellent videos.

Note relative to the plan we moved the start to Samoens plus we had to re-route day 4 as a tunnel had collapsed due to a land slide. Plus we shortened the final day due to the weather forecast and general knackeredness of the riders.

Here are a few stats:

- Distance 910km
- Accent: 22,242m
- Min temp: 2 C
- Max Temp: 37 C
- Sarah's Flapjacks eaten 130
- Biggest temperature range in one day 27 C
- Average Speed 20.3km/h
- Orange Bikes: 1 Rock: 0
- Spray on skin: 1 Jobby 0
- Highest Point Col de I'Iseran 2770m
