In June four of us went to the Alps to enjoy 5 days of riding along the French/Italian border, pretty much following the “Route des Grandes Alpes”. Besides all the tarmac-passes, we covered as many gravel-passes as possible, e.g. Assietta, Finestre, Tende and Parpaillon. In mid-June some of the highest passes were still covered in snow so we had to turn back on some passes.


Anyway. my intention was to video-film as much of the riding as possible. I had refined the camera-holder so that it’s well dampened to withstand vibrations and bumps. However, the weather was extremely hot and dry, making riding on the gravel very dusty. This resulted in a ruined camera after just half a day! Well, this 8-minute film summarizes that first day’s morning-riding.
