An Inspirational Story about a modest, humble local Mollymook legend.

AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH:

Mollymook’s Johnny Louth who will turn 70 in four months, has just completed the “L’Etape Australia” in the Australian Alps.  

The L’ETAPE race was run on Saturday November 30, 2019 beginning at 6.30 am. The “L’Étape Australia” is the largest Tour de France event held outside France. It is a torturous 170km bike ride run to Tour de France professional standards. It provides amateur riders with an experience as close to riding in the Tour de France as is possible, with fully closed roads and a mountainous course that is the equal of a mountainous stage of the Tour de France. The Race took riders from Jindabyne to Rocky Plains, Berridale, then onto the King of the Mountain sections at Col de Beloka and Col de Kosciuszko, thereafter descending back to Jindabyne. The Race route is 170km long with a 3,000m height climb, ending with a long steep 22km decent. 

John was one of 1224 starters and finished 26th in his 65-69 age category in a time of 10:07:55.

To better understand John’s remarkable achievement, consider the above course outline that graphically illustrates the degree of difficulty with this mountainous course. The very steep ‘Col de Beloka’ 3.04km climb. Later you face ‘Col de Kosciuszko’ a 3,000m height. If those conditions aren’t harsh enough, It was conducted freezing cold  weather with riders facing huge head winds, so strong that John was blown off his bike on one occasion and some younger riders turned back and withdrew from the race.
