Coached by Karen Mackin.

On August 23, 2015, Greg Judin set out to accomplish quite a feat to finish the Haute Route, Alps. This is no ordinary amateur stage race, it is 7 consecutive days with stages that cover a total of 855km (531mi), with over 22150m (72,670ft) of climbing. The Haute Route Alps traversed the French Alps starting from Nice on the Mediterranean coast and finishing in Geneva’s Jardin Anglais on the shore of the lake. Some of the sport’s most iconic and demanding ascents are included in the route. After the event, in a post-race Skype-chat with his coach, a very happy Greg posted, "I actually still can't believe I climbed over 21,000 vertical metres on a bike last week - the numbers are off the chart!!" He spent many hours in the saddle working diligently to boost up his Chronic Training Load, in order to prepare for the event and all of his hard work really paid off! Congratulations Greg!
