Pro Training

With 2,645 metres, the Col du Galibier is the highest mountain that the racers have to climb during the Tour de France.

So if you want to make your indoor RealAxiom ride as realistic as possible you have to put your training system in the refrigerator and lower the oxygen percentage in the air. Only the very best climbers reach the top before the bunch.
Just to give you some names: in 2005 Alexander Vinokourov was the first one to reach the summit, in 2003 Stefano Garzelli raced to the top and Santiago Botero did so in 2002.

Don’t be too enthusiastic in the beginning of this gruelling climb because in the last two kilometres you’ll have to deal with 9% and more!
