BIG. PAINFUL. FUN.
This may well be one of the most difficult cycling sportives in the world.
There are two routes; 95K long with 2500m of climbing, or the full-fat 195K, with 5000m of climbing. You will cycle up Tour de France HC and Cat 1 climbs and ride on near-deserted roads that are as brutal as they are beautiful.
Tour Dates: August 19-26 (Figure of Hate is on Aug 23)
Cost:$1325 (includes event registration and all standard tour offerings)
