2018: another year on the road

2018 another year on the road

December 25, 2018

2018 was another great year on the bike. Here is a selection of my best photos, from the roads of the Giro to the snowy slopes of my beloved Alpes Vaudoises.

Enjoy and have a fantastic 2019 full of long bike rides, trips to new places, good food, meaningful moments with your friends and families, and time away from your screens.

Climbing the Colle delle Finestre just before the Giro d'Italia
The Colle Delle Finestre is one of my favorite climbs in the Alps. I work as a bike guide and rode it with a group of clients just before the famous Giro stage won by Chris Froome. No cars were allowed ahead of the race so it was just us, the snow and the dirt road.
Tom Dumoulin and Thibaut Pinot in Sestrieres, Italy
A memorable day on the Giro d’Italia roads, witnessing the epic battle for the maglia rosa. Tom Dumoulin and Thibaut Pinot tried everything but Chris Froome was just too strong
Climbing the Col de la Croix in the Alpes Vaudoises
In July, I took a group of friends on the Tour des Alpes Vaudoises, a 4 day tour in our local mountains. Here near the top of the Col de la Croix.
Climbing the Nufenen pass, Switzerland
The Nufenen (2’478m) is the second highest paved pass in Switzerland. Its north side is a relentless climb amongst dark peaks

My last bike trip of the season was a holiday. I explored the Strade Bianche in Tuscany and got to enjoy some fantastic sunsets

After a long road cycling season in the Alps, we found new motivation by scouting the dirt roads above Villars-sur-Ollon on gravel bikes with Luca
Autumn ride in Gryon, Switzerland
We were treated to a beautiful autumn in Switzerland this year. A great opportunity to explore the small roads around our hometown of Gryon with Luca

What do you do when it snows but there is not enough white stuff to go ski touring? Just ride your bike and enjoy the views
