French hope for the world title Julian Alaphilippe looks in great condition doing these hill repeats as he builds towards Sunday’s World Championships.

As this video shows, the French rider was digging deep doing his intervals up this climb; watched by his trade team’s support staff.

QuickStep personnel were following in a team car, and tooting the horn for Julian Alaphilippe to start and finish his uphill sprint efforts.

Alaphilippe looks like he was really digging deep in the video he has shared on social media.

On the Innsbruck course, with late climbs and an undulating course throughout, it’s short sharp uphill sprints that will prove vital.

The Tour de France king of the mountains has been in flying form all year, and has been maintaining that form.

But he is doing these hill repeats to stay sharp and prepare his body for the effort that will be required on Sunday.

Julian Alaphilippe will go into the race as one of the hot favourites for the title. And in these efforts he’s hitting speeds of 33-35km per hour.
