I think that's 35K feet; the winners this year climbed well over 27K. It was a wild race, with lots of rain. It'll be on OLN later this fall.

I keep thinking to myself that I would like to try the TransAlp sometime. I'd like to see how I respond to several consecutive days in the mountains....

Lost his partner to sickness very early, but they let him finish with another single for an unofficial result.

He wants to go back RFN! Very well supported, great crews, alot of old euro-trash cycling folk.

TransRockies was also similar, but nothing like the Alps I'd presume.
