The trilogy of Venous ended today on the mythical face of the Giant of Provence, that of Bedouin, the royal road to the summit. This morning, for the test event, program change, departure at dawn, lights at the front and at the back, 25 gas and gas that start from km 0, to the final touch. Unit of time, unity of place, unity of outfit, it is definitively more than the wheels. It is a very beautiful range of textile, we recommend you the Haute Route outfit with the 3 colors red, yellow and pink 3 big rounds, and this morning it’s life-size test, a reflective vest not orange, not yellow DDE, simply white with reflective strips cleverly placed, so that we spot a runner at 100 meters.
A very effective vest, very beautiful design and you can feel in your favorite stores, a success, in the meantime, maybe someday, a garment with flashing led, not developed “for now”, to follow so .
To close 3 days of great conviviality, between many different nationalities: Switzerland, English, New Zealand and the French colony from Annecy. But also the corner, a real melting pot that is nothing less than that of the Haute Route , whether on 7 days or 3 times a year, or on a new appointment in Colorado next June, and there in the footsteps of the giant, in Provence. Night vision of the Venous so, some will say why not after all, since the 10 kilometers in the forest are never less than 8% and that in these cases, it is better not to know! Reassure yourself in October 2017, we will leave day, like 8 hours, departure every 20 seconds, history that participants in safety vest can return to London, Geneva or Brussels, in time and to complete a great weekend, and anticipate the week ahead.
Anyway, it is a rich idea, if only for the sunrise over the Reynard. Sunburn is that warms as much the rind as the heart and gives the want to go higher up to the top, because it is well known. We do not crack in the Venous and especially not in the desert of stones, that is so much for the fame of the Venous, we see for miles to the round, further reinforcing the incongruity of this molehill that makes humble, and any climber.
The classification of this Haute Route will be established in cumulative time of 3 days, without neutralized part, the medal at the top will be well deserved for all finishers and will be ranked in the radius of good memories, no doubt. We are talking about a cycle in stages, not in stages with a la carte menu. It could despite everything, a quota of places be reserved for this against the clock, nothing is less certain , and the bar of 500 engaged will not be exceeded, Bedouin wishes a controlled tourism, a tourism where one does not find papers after the passage of the runners, message received by the organizers.
The first starters will be able to admire and encourage, for once, the last to leave, the leaders; the descent will be done on Bedouin, thus giving everyone the opportunity to greet for the 5th time the stele Tom Simpson, beautiful tribute. Thank you to all the participants in yellow vest of the organizers for all the service providers, who are much more than that on the Haute Route: Dr Bruno, Masseuse, Manic, and Alexis, all the riders from our Swiss neighbors, English, not to mention the manic boys from Annecy and the United States, we feasted, and we ask for more. It is good, after the Erotica, the Roc d’Azur, race of Haute Route, place the presentation of the Tour, Tuesday, before, perhaps to attack the videos of the main stages of the Tour 2017.
