Here is the latest update from the French Alps as the crew and riders make their way to Monaco.

Day 4 was another hard day on the Trans Provence as the riders were really starting to feel the burn.

The route took the 70 riders through the Maritime Alps and was just under 30km long so slightly shorter than on other days in the weeklong race. This was compensated by a seriously intense climb and at some points a seemly impossible mountain pass.

Rider Seb Kemp said of the day “From wet and wild loamy Ubac to steep and technical Rochers De Bramus and even the lunar landscape of the infamous ‘grey earth’ stage, the riding couldn’t really be anymore varied than it has been. And this was just one day. With three more to come and Monte Carlo still feeling like a faraway land I feel like we may be distended from trail consumption by then.”

Jérôme Clementz reclaimed first place after taking second to Nicholas Vouilloz for the last two days leading with over a minute to spare.

Anne-Caroline Chausson is still leading the women’s race by a long way with Rosara Joseph still in second and Anka Martin maintaining third place.
