now you need to carry the bike this start is very mountainous directed by Alexis Righetti the Machine in front of the Ecrins… above the highest village in France… the peak of la Cula we’re above Ceillac in Queyras with Fanny and we’ll ride a 3000 m! this 3000 is significant for me because… …this is the first 3000 I climbed when I was a kid its name is “la tête de la cula” (seems like “ass head” in French) there are traffic jams too here! we are not disturbed by tourists! such colors in autumn! it’s my favourite season because the mountain is the most beautiful… …and there is no one the mountain seems to wait for something… it waits for the rigor of winter it’s between two times… as if you have to go there on tiptoe …to not disturb the mountain I feel like you’re cold… we’ll go faster! today the mountain is hostile better to go back before the night! we leave the forest to enter the real mountain so Fanny, where are we? do you have the level 10 in map reading? yes you’re able to open the map directly in the good place so where re we? we started there and we are here well done! she is getting better! she will guide me soon… so how much elevation? almost 500 m yes that’s it! so it remains 600 little climb 1100 m, easy. but it’s cold! does’nt it look like dried cow dung? once again… I hurt myslef on the brake disc… I got hurt again Fanny ah… how? with the discs again? yes! pity… I think you don’t care at all in fact… can you heal me? I can lick your finger and make you a healing kiss the finger… I don’t care! the finger? she didn’t understand… the snow just melted, good time to be here! we are going… up there! there is exactly the good amount of snow but if it frozen, not good… my blood is fluo! Fanny says it’s good from here you have to carry the bike in the snow! beautiful isn’t it? I don’t stop bleeding… not a big deal I lose weight I’m saving that to climb! no footprints… we’re the first to climb the summit since a week but the snow is very frost it’s almost dangerous it has to melt before we go down trust your foots! I don’t like that… yes, go stick a little and it’s good… keep on… I hope we won’t need crampons… beacause we don’t have crampons! the images are misleading you see that hill which seems so little because… it’s shoot from the bottum… it’s 150 m high, half of the Eiffel tower! it’s bike-alpinism as I like! the summit is tougher than I tought we have to climb that Fanny! some rockclimbing… I missed it here we are, the “Tete de la Cula”! 3100 m highest summit of 2018 but 3100 m in the Alps, is easier than in Pyrenees.. this start is very mountainous… I go down straight to go to the snow! ok? ok go! give me the cam… it’s so beautiful!
