As we were climbing up the last portion of the Col De Mollard there were quite a few fans on the side of the road. Everyone is super friendly and cheer you on. They also do a double take as they see my huge bike frame and a big German climbing the mountain:)
We took a little break at the top of the Mollard. I got some great pictures of a huge KOM banner ...
