More than 7/10 tomorrow

Bicycle Ride Up l'Alpe d'Huez

Here's a first-person account of climbing l'Alpe d'Huez, site of tomorrow's individual time trial, and its famed 21 switchbacks. Lots of photos, and the rider/author gives something of an idea of what parts of the climb are hardest, where things ease up a bit, etc.

He ranks it a 7 out of 10, but I doubt he was riding it all-out.
