Stories, information and comments from Grand Ballon climbers
Story by Arjan from Veenendaal, The Netherlands, submitted on 26/06/2006
Last Friday (23 june 2006) we rode in France and after 120 KM our last climb was the Grand Ballon. It was beautiful weather, but after a lot of climbs it was very hard. The first 9 KM arent steep, but the bottom of the way isnt good. The second part has better asfalt, but is steep. It was heavy, but we its a very very nice climb! Greetz, Arjan
