Rollerskiing in the French Alps

29 Jul

I spent last week in the French Alps. I brought my rollerskis with me even though I wasn’t sure if I’d get the chance to use them.

As you can see from the video, it was a wise choice. I rollerskied almost every day up the same 5km route to the Col de la Madeleine.

The weather was delightful and it made for really efficient training. The sign in town said I started at 1650 meters and the sign at the top of the pass said 2000 meters (the GPS actually claimed another 25 meters).

Today, back in Oslo and nearly at sea-level, climbing Grefsenkollen felt amazingly easy in comparison.
