Right, just thought I'd nail now a race report for the Alpe d'Huez long course triathlon (http://www.alpetriathlon.com/en) while it was still fresh even though I'm sitting on a half finished season update blog which I'm sure you are all waiting for with baited breathe.
This is my 3rd attempt at what is perhaps the event which played the biggest part in attracting me to triathlon. Many years ago, in a former life as an electronic engineering student, I completed my Masters degree in Grenoble. Alpe d'Huez and the mountains around here where my cycling playground so a triathlon with a bike leg which took in those mountains is pretty much my dream event.
Hi, I'm Ali. I like riding bikes and coaching people to achieve their athletic goals. I've been coaching for more than 10 years now and have never failed to make an athlete faster (I can't quite believe this myself either). I used to race bikes, triathlon and in 2014 I broke 9 vertebrae and my skull. Follow my journey here and on Twitter.
