TOUR DE FRANCE
An amateur should think long and hard before attempting one of these stages, 2 would probably necessitate a visit to a doctor, 3 would require a psychiatrist – anymore and you should be checking that person has written a will.
Bernard Hinault, 5 times Tour de France winner
Kind of sums it up really …20 stages complete, 1 gentle ride into Paris tomorrow
Could I really fulfill a lifetimes ambition and complete the 21 stages of the TDF … really ??
Paris is in touching distance…
It wasn’t really a TIme Trial it was a gentle ride around the port of Marseille and a sharp ramp up to the city’s beautiful basilica. It will be a technical ride for the PROS as it winds it way around the streets at the speeds they travel , for us it was a ride to savour , it was an opportunity to just turn the legs ?
Now it’s a TGV ride up to Paris… full of excitement at the thought of this epic journey coming to an end.
