Tom and Matt rode the Alpe d'Huez to get a feel for what the climb is really like. It's famous for its role in the Tour de France, with every hairpin being named after a winner on the climb.
On our way up we visited Dutch Corner and experienced the full range of Alpine weather conditions.
Tom and Matt's time was 1 hour 5 minutes and 3 seconds. Let us know how you compare in the comments below!
