This is one of those ‘holy s**t’ type cycling videos. A bit like the feeling after watching Rapha’s 1910 video published a couple of years ago. You may recall in 1910, the Tour de France ventured into the big mountains for the first time. The 1910 video exemplified the message of how tough it was to ride the Tour in the early days.
In this video, Mike, with the assistance of Mavic, completes 1,012kms with 21,250metres of elevation in in a riding time of 50 hours 29 minutes (total time 53 hours 38 minutes). Those facts alone make this a compelling video to watch.
Amazing, Mr Cotty.
