  2. My video diary of the Marmotte cyclosportive, held in the French Alps on 4th July, 2009. The 174 kilometre event starts in Bourg d'Oisans and takes in the climbs of the Tour de France with the Col du Glandon, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galbiier and finishes at the legendary ski resort of Alpe d'Huez. In total, 7,000 riders started the event which climbed 5000 metres of vertical ascent over the 174 kilometres.

    This was my seventh Marmotte event, and I finished in 8 hours and 18 minutes, seven and a half minutes faster than in 2008.
