Alpe d'Huez 2013

Relatively short, great scenery, nice food, flat swim; who's up for a little jolly in the French countryside?

 STIL - Great to hear from another French Alps Loon!   Enjoyed reading that and it sounds like a must do in the future.

I'll be driving past the Alpe d'Huez on the 12th August on the way to Embrun.

Embrunman next year?

Well done!! It's onmy list after cycling alpe D'Huez and col d'ornon a few weeks ago...very tempting!

It is a properly good race. It would be great to do it properly fit .

I love the look of Embrunman, Slim. Massive kudos to you for doing it and going back. But I'm thinking more along the lines of Copenhagen or Florida, like Buddha mentioned. Or retirement .

Great report - must say though I'm glad it was pointed out that it's only a little longer than a half, that gives me the perfect excuse as I'm medically forbidden to run more than 10km!

Nice one STIL - you'd have sold it to me with that report if it wasn't alreaday on a list.  Along with Embrunman, I should add.

I have very much enjoyed the report and sherpa memories.

It worked brilliantly as an event to combine with a family holiday. I loved the Alps in summer and the race was very civilised being both mid week and a 9:30 start.
