Next assignment, and this will be a tough one...  Tomorrow I will give a try to a course already ridden with some fellow-randonneurs a few years ago while training for the Barcelona-Perpinyà (that's a 600+ brevet with lots of climbing regarded as the highlight of rando-season in Catalonia).

Weather forecast is not that hot as last Sunday (in fact, temperatures are coming back to normal). Let's try not to repeat the same mistakes...

The parcourse is scenic, really scenic (I'll show some pics from the lovely hamlet of Montseny ans its breathtaking balcony over the the Natural Park with the unmistakable silhouette of the Turó de l'Home in the background) . It's some 175 km long and includes three main passes: the mighty Collformic (25 km long with some 10% ramps, nearly never under 6%), the Coll de la Pollosa and the Coll de Lligabosses (some five km each).

It's a good test to assess my present form (... sighs)
