Swiss Reinsurance Tourist Trophy
« on: June 19, 2013, 09:19:35 pm »
Hi Buddies,
Tomorrow morning 6.30 I will leave home for a 700kms ride to attend this annual gathering of Swiss, German, British and French Reinsurance Professionals. This year the meeting point is Martigny (CH), on Friday we'll wander into Italy (Val d'Aoste), cross the French border through Bourg Saint Maurice, Val d'Isère, Lanslebourg, Modane to finally settle in Valloire. Saturday that will be Valloire, Mont de Lans, Bourg d'Oisans, La Mure, Mens, Die, and the Vercors to Rencurel. Sunday on ou way back that will be La Chartreuse, Chambéry, Annecy and Geneva before splitting.
Hope to post some pictures if weather allows taking them. Altogether a close to 2000 kms roundtrip!

Map overview attached below (pdf document)

thank you all, now back home after over 2000kms ride and 19 passes climbed (and down) fantastic weather. Could keep up with the RTs but the Multistradas were too fast and light for me! Attached is a picture of our group, taken Saturday morning on top of the Galibier pass (9.00 am, 4°C)
