How long do happy faces last when you're tackling an alpine brute?...

Would you just look at those happy faces!

They didn't last long apparently...

Alpe d'Huez really is a tough climb. The gradient holds at around 10% for the full 14km and there are some really long sections between the 21 hairpin bends.

That said, there's nothing like riding the famous climbs of the Tour de France and these smiles surely lasted until the first switchback.

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
