One of the focuses of my challenges is to continually take myself out of my comfort zone, to push me both physically and mentally. There has been a progression in all that I have done, and after this year's challenges I knew that in 2016 I would need to raise the bar yet again. As far as cycling goes the Alps Haute Route is the next logical step for me.
Starting in Nice the race will run over seven consecutive days finishing in Geneva, in the process covering 800km, riding 20,000m of ascent and conquering 20 iconic cols. With professional level event organisation the Haute Route will be run as a professional race, only for amateurs.
