GPS didn't work for part of the trip so missed about 3km. Going quiet well and better style after a lesson with Valentin from the Ecole de Porte.
Tour of the farms
Very hot again, 29C at midday so I just rolled along to the dyke to the end without trying too hard then turned around and took the road and cycle path through the Innovalley.
It is insanely hot at the moment so I thought an early start, flat and by the water would be, well if not pleasant, supportable. Well by 9.30am it was far too hot for any sport but luckily I was back.
Rollerski practice session
Practice double polling, freeski, gear 1 and gear 2. I didn't feel like going out too much to be honest due to tiredness but glad I made the effort really.
Post desolation tour
After yesterday's Dauphine finish in terrible conditions I decided to tour the same roads towards the final climb. Quite a strong wind riding out north to the start of the climb.
Rollerski kit shakedown
I've just replaced my rollerski wheels and have new poles after breaking a pole at the end of last season so wanted to check everything was working. It wasn't.
Isere dike inline skate
Back on the blades due to my tennis elbow. The idea is to work on balance and stride length with the hope this will transfer over to rollerskiing.
Le Pleynet crust skiing
I decided to head back up to Le Pleynet.
Murianette - Combe de Lancey
Murianette then over to the Combe de Lancey via the Revel - le Mont backroad. Seriously why make life easy when you can make it hard. The "tres amigos" met over at B.
Col de Merdaret, les 7 Laux, France
I'd wondered for a long time if it were possible to reach the Rocher Noire from the Pipay side of les 7 Laux. Normally you climb from the col du Barioz.
