The BMC TrailFox is in pretty rough shape after the Pass’Porte du Soleil but it’s hanging in there. We took all day to complete a relatively short but challenging route over la Dent du Midi – the ominous mountain overlooking Champéry. A nice social pace with 1000m of climbing, a small hut at the top that served a full menu of wonderful Swiss food, and some of the best singletrack imaginable. No intervals, no rolling turns, no smashing each other. The way a cycling holiday outta be. These photos will do a better job at describing it than I ever could.

Tomorrow I’ll be back on the road bike and hopefully pop by the road to the UCI headquarters down the road in Aigle. Fire on over any messages you want me to pass onto Pat McQuaid.
