The 1910 Challenge
The centenary of the Col du Tourmalet’s inclusion in the Tour de France will be celebrated with a mountain-top finish on stage 17 of the 2010 edition of the race. As well as the special edition Tourmalet Jersey, Rapha honoured the first ever Tour stage that tackled the Tourmalet with a tribute ride, The 1910 Challenge.
Philipp is busy these days as the time trial races are picking up and there are some almost every week. Last week he was racing another race at the Röhsler Cup which was a 9km slightly uphill at the beginning and ended in a super steep finish ramping up to 17.5 % which definitely isn’t the course suited him. He managed a 17th overall and a 9th in his age group and now sits 3rd in the all overall cup. Next ITT was one in Upper Austria in Perg through the super lovely „Naantal“. A 17,5 km course where the first have was slightly uphill and a turnaround and than a super fast rolling downhill. A fun TT he managed to finish 13th overall and 6th in his age group.
