In a couple of days I’ll be hopping in a car to drive for more than 6 hours, over the Pyrenees, so I can then hop on my bike and cross them again (two more times), in a 200 km pursuit of Joseba Beloki, one of the several Spanish celebrities starting in the first pen.
The Quebrantahuesos, other than being a name I never could have imagined I’d remember how to spell, is also my first sportive / gran fondo in Spain. Apart from the 3 mountains we need to get over (Col du Somport, Col de Marie-Blanque, Col du Pourtalet), I’m looking forward to it.
Am I well trained? No. Down to racing weight? Ha! Resigned? Si.
Full report with all the ugly details next Monday.
