Our Everest…. Mont Ventoux

With less than 3 months to go the training is starting to heat up. Last weekend the Financial News Strava group racked up an impressive cumulative 948km.

There are a number of ways to motivate yourself for such an epic ride but I think the graphic Fareed found depicting Mont Ventoux does the trick nicely. We face this mythical climb on day 7. We will have cycled a long way already, some 700 miles. This is our Everest and the scene of the Financial News London to Monte Carlo 2 inaugural King of the Mountain stage. To the victor the spoils.



20 Riders Confirmed. Only a couple of places left…

We have 20 cyclists confirmed for London to Monte Carlo 2. More about those brave souls later but this is officially the last shout out for riders. There are a couple of spots left and we’d be delighted for you to join us. Previous posts on this blog give you all the details and what you need to know. As always additional details can be found on http://www.efinancialnews.com/montecarlo

Aside from that – all I can do is leave you with an image or two of what’s in store….
