Day one in the Dolomites with Chris and Matt. Weather was looking ominous with mist and rain setting in and some thunder about. Rain stopped after half an hour and then the mist cleared uncovering some amazing views of rocky peaks in every direction. Ahh, it’s good to be back!

9 PM

Running 43:00 [2] 6.0 km (7:10 / km) +360m 5:31 / km

Sunset leg stretch after a day of travelling, otherwise known as the prologue to what is sure to be an exciting GC battle for the annual Tour de Dolomites. Three favourites in contention for this highly prestigious race. The experienced Elkington and Wright return for their second tours whilst the much hyped youngster from Derbados, Christallo Owens makes his professional debut. He oozes youthful exuberance and has been likened to a fully grown cheetah when in full flight.

Christallo set the early pace up the lower slopes of the Col de Refuge ski path. Perhaps over confidently, perhaps just testing out his rivals. The pre-race favourite Elko Elkington complained of problems in the lung area and so the pace was upped. As the light faded over the peloton, the pack rebunched for the final showdown to the refuge. Christallo valiantly dug in but was distanced on the final straight as the gradient steepened.

The GC contenders turned for the descent where Christallo closed in. As the racers entered the forest they realised that seeing the ground was practically impossible. Hands were held, the pace slackened, and the stage ended with the racers together. A real taster of the standard of racing that awaits the fans over the following week.

Club run from Ambleside. Testing out the scandalous horseshoe. Cloud cleared on the top of Red Screes and the sky was crystal clear looking over the Langdale pikes and Coniston fells. So nice.
