OK, before you launch into reading – a little disclaimer – this is simply me posting up something that I wrote for Sportive.com in July 2018.
I’ve got a bit of a mild obsession with going back to ride Marmotte in 2019 and quite like the piece so wanted to get it onto the blog. If I’d have been writing it specifically for mountainmutton the style would have been a touch different, but it’s still pretty standard jim-fayre.
I can’t just copy-paste the text into the blog as it will cause issues with their search and SEO (or something else I don’t understand), so I’ve screenshotted it and added a few different images
And P.S. No, I’ve not ridden all the Gran Fondos in Europe, so no, I cannot really make the claim made in the title. But I don’t care.
