Boucles Drôme-Ardèche review: Drujon springs a surprise

The new Boucles Drôme-Ardèche double-header in France this weekend was disrupted when the first leg was cancelled thanks to snow. Fortunately, the 13th edition of the second leg wasn’t similarly afflicted and the riders were able to take to the start of the undulating 197.8km parcours from Bourg-Saint-Andreol to Ruoms with 11 climbs – not too dissimilar to last year’s – finishing with a triple circuit including the last two of the climbs: the Rocher de Sampzon and the Cote de la Vignasse. 668 more words
