Ride Around Mont Blanc

Race around Mont Blanc, not quite, just a fun enduro ride for four days. Unfortunately we probably chosen the worst week of this summer. On the last day it even snowed.

It was sad to cut the route for one day short. We still rode around the mountain which we did not see once!

Thanks to Erik Kleinhans and Konny Looser for the great company!

As you can see on the pictures I was riding the Specialized Enduro. A few years ago I never thought I am going to ride a 15/16cm travel bike on a trip like this. The bike was climbing so well (around 2500m every day) and for the descends it felt like a lightweight downhill bike. Also all the rain and mud over all the four days did not make my suspension any sticky. For example I did not oil my Rock Shox Pike once!
