Whilst the Three Tours Challenge has only recently been made public I've known about it for some time now, and as such have been preparing accordingly, all the while trying to contain my excitement and keep my feet on the ground (or should that be in the pedals).

Growing up as children we are carefree, our dreams know no boundaries, our imaginations run wild, seemingly no limits to what we can achieve. Scoring the winning goal at the World Cup Final, a gold medal at the Olympics, the lead role in an epic Hollywood adventure, walking on the moon or winning the Tour de France.

On Saturday I successfully completed a huge goal of mine, I finished in the top 150 of one of the world’s toughest amateur cycling stage races, Haute Route Alps. A race that covered 800km over seven timed stages, taking competitors from Nice to Geneva on an epic journey through the heart of the Alps. And yet as I sit here five days later I feel lost and sad.
