Mountain Biking (59)
PR on the climb
Finally broke my PR on the Berger climb: 9m45, 20 seconds quicker than 2013 and I was an a lighter hardtail back then.
We climbed (raced really) with a running group on the climb.
Descent from Prapoutel, Les 7 Laux, Belledonne, French Alps
We took the bus from Crolles to les 7 Laux for 1 euro, bike included. Not bad value.
Manival single with Croix Trousset
We'd not been up on the coteaux for a while, since the start of June probably. So a return to our favourite singles. It felt tiring but we climb the Manival trail in record time, Tot 1 minute ahead.
Tour with the neighbours, we were after something dryish after the recent storms and the rocky Manival seemed like a good choice followed by a return on the Croix Trousset (which can be wet).
After ski ride
A quick MTB through the singles behind the house before the grey weather arrived. A lot of walkers about but we saw no-one (for a change) on our singles except the Croix de Troussait.
la Marie et cie
A return to the Marie. I managed to screw up the entrance and do a loop and land on my head which left me a bit dazed for a minute or two.
Figure of eight
Short lunch ride with JG to see if we could nail the steps of the Berger but still two short runs that are a bit limit on a technical level.
La Marie Singletrack. St Ismier, Gresivaudan, French Alps
From St Ismier, climbed to the Tour d'Arces than past the Pierre Grosse (large rock), continue 500 meters.
We probably should have ridden against the wind to start with as it was very hard getting home across the Steppes of the Gresivaudan.
