Etape Verbier - St Tropez

August 25, 2013  •  1 Comment
 
And so it has begun!  I remember Neil Aherne of CK Vervier mentioning the idea to cycle from Verbier to St Tropez nearly 3 years ago now.  Finally after lots of planning over the last year with Louise Beer (also of CK Verbier), they managed to bring on board 32 of Verbier's finest to take on the challenge together.  With no prior cycle training for most of the riders, the summer has been a test on their will and endurance.  I wish them loads of luck over the next few days and hope they all make it to St Tropez on Wednesday!  Best of luck guys!!
