Haute Route: road'cc's Jo Burt in good spirits ahead of today's Queen Stage (+ video)

Latest from this week's 300-rider event taking in 15 cols between Geneva and Nice...

What’s more, today you can track Jo’s progress on what is pretty much the Queen Stage of the seven-day event, which takes in no fewer than 15 Cols between Geneva and Nice, via the Haute Route website through the magic of GPS.

Haute Route TV caught up with Jo and interviewed him at the end of yesterday’s Stage 2, and he certainly seems to be in good spirits – let’s hope that continues throughout the rest of the week.

The following video also provides an overview of just what lies in store for the 300 or so cyclists tackling the Haute Route this week.


You can also read a special edition of the bilingual French/English magazine Mountain Addict dedicated to the Haute Route here.
