Registration is now open for the 2011 Rapha Cent Cols Challenge – billed as the one of the toughest multi-day events open to amateur cyclists.
The sportive tackles 100 French cols in 10 days, taking in more than 40,000m of climbing. RCUK’s David Arthur rode the inaugural event in 2009.
Two Cent Cols’ will run in 2011 from August 28-September 9 and September 11-23.
“If its breathtaking views, a sense of achievement and a real physical challenge you are after, then this is it,” said Team Sky directeur sportif Sean Yates.
You can sign up as an individual or as part of team and, with only 70 places available, demand is expected to be very high. Contact [email protected] for more information.
