Ernesto will be participating in Le Cure 2022 and will attempt to cycle 453 kilometers and climb 10,034 vertical metres.
Since starting Le Cure, Ernesto has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 1.37 times, and cycled around the m25 2.03 times! That's 12,097 vertical metres and 382 kilometres.
The first day, when we all set out on a beautiful sunny day, all 40 of us plus the support team, wearing our Le Cure pink jerseys. Feeling fresh. Really spectacular way to get started
Day 3 in Aosta, when it was raining heavily and the mountains were covered in fog. I experienced my first bout of hypothermia, ever, on the descent from one of the mountains. Steve Chester and Matthias got me warm and dry clothes and made sure I was ok to finish the ride after warming up in the food tent. I wouldn't have finished the ride without the camaraderie and support from other curistas
Eat well and wrap up heavily on descents, particularly if cold, foggy, and/or wet
