The Haute Route cyclo-sportive has received a record number of entrants for its second edition next August. The organiser of the week-long cycling adventure through the Alps announced on Friday that it already entered 450 riders in the first eight hours of registration.

It is "a phenomenal response from riders across the globe eager to take on the world's toughest and highest cyclo-sportive," read a press release. "After this year's inaugural edition, the Haute Route immediately established a reputation as one of the most gruelling, but equally sought after events for amateur cyclists."
