Raid Alpine Stage Two

Praz sur Arly to Tignes La Reculaz (105 kms and 3079m ascent)

A beautiful days riding today, visiting some of the most well known areas of the Alps in both winter and summer. We have a meagre 2km warm up from the hotel before we start on the lovely Col de Saisies (1,633m) with a great descent to the pretty town of Beaufort. Our next climbs come one after the other, starting with the Col du Pre (1740m), with a quick descent before climbing back up to Cormet de Roselend (1968m). Oooof! But, then we get a 26km descent before starting on the mighty Col d’Iseran but only as far as Tignes La Reculaz (just before Val d’Isere), where we stop for a well earned rest.
