The heatwave that hit Europe over the weekend gave riders an extra something to battle through as the Trans-Provence got underway under sunny skies – a contrast to last year’s snow-capped race. Check out the best of day one from this most revered of events!

“What a scorcher to start the week! Day 1 saw a complete contrast to last year’s opening four Special Stages at the Mavic Trans-Provence 2017.

“If yesterday was a day for spinning out the legs or chilling out, today threw everyone in at the high end. Col des Orres saw wheels turning over the highest point of the week at a cool (but still actually pretty flippin’ warm) 2613m. Gone was the snow of 2016, replaced by temperatures marching past the thirty degree mark in the glacier-carved Ubaye Valley.”
